The Male Brain vs. The Female Brain
Michael DeDonno

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: There’s a consistent belief that men and women think differently. Books have been written suggesting men and women are from different planets. A question arises as to the real differences between the male brain and the female brain. This presentation will include an entertaining look at physical brain differences, as well as behavioral differences. Questions to be explored include: Do women really talk more than men? Do women think differently when it comes to love and relationships? Why does it seem men and women are on different wavelengths when communicating? Entertaining videos, tasks, and simple games will be presented to explore the differences between the men and women in the audience. The outcome from the presentation may be a better understanding of how the opposite sex thinks, and possibly a renewed interest in exploring these differences.
