Here is a Special Issue of "Brain & Psycho" quite exceptional to read, title: Brain Man / Woman: what differences? . It is a publication of Pour la Science, it is "heavy" based on scientific studies (mostly American) over years ...
It will still be available in Kioske until the end of April 2011, otherwise on purchasable on the site.
Articles on the influence of hormones on the functioning of the female brain are particularly interesting, 2 examples:
a) The brain of a woman who has been pregnant one day is changed forever (more able to protect her endings, to feed them ...)
b) The functioning of the female brain is much more symmetrical than that of men (they are therefore more multitask but less precise on certain spots) ... except ... during the rules where their operation meets the asymmetry of men!
Interesting is not it?
"It's not my fault, it's my hormones" will never have been such a valid excuse ...
Brain Man / Woman: what differences?
Although controversial, “human brain dimorphism” is increasingly well documented. The purpose of this issue of L'Essentiel Cerveau & Psycho is precisely to present the great differences which distinguish the psychology of men from that of women. Because, whatever some may say, men and women do not have the same tastes, skills, areas of interest or behaviors. Some of these dissimilarities are notable, others less so.

Lighter but in the same genre, a Paul Dewandre show "Men come from Mars and women from Venus" which is a hit: http://www.mars-venus.fr/
It exists since 2006 but remains little known!
