Gina Rippon - Gender and Our Brains: How New Neuroscience Explodes the Myths of the Male and Female Minds

Upcoming Event
Sunday, September 22, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

In her important new book, Rippon, an international researcher in cognitive neuroscience, assembles the latest results from psychology and state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques to prove that there is no biological distinction between male and female brains. Showing that seemingly gender-based brain differences are the products of pseudoscience rooted in social factors, Rippon cites the overwhelming evidence that indicates all brains are a flexible, adaptive, mix of “male” and “female” components. A member of the European Union Gender Equity Network, Rippon has produced measured, authoritative, and often humorous work that has immense and liberating implications for understanding identity.
