11/10/06: The Female Brain

Louann Brizendine M.D. is a neuropsychiatrist at the University of California, San Francisco.

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – It might be amusing to read that women use an average of 20,000 words per day, while men use only 7,000 - but the differences between the female and male brain that neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine identifies go beyond a list of humorous facts. In her 20 years of clinical research, Brizendine has focused on the unique characteristics of a woman's brain - with implications on how we understand the relationship between the body, the mind and mental health. She joins Doug to talk about her controversial book The Female Brain - a kind of owner's manual for women. (Rebroadcast)
