In reply to the corpus callosum of women is not bigger, posted by mars on February 18, 2001, at 1:53:38
Thanks for the information regarding the more recent measurements of the corpus callosum with respect to gender. It seems that, generally speaking, there is little association between gender and absolute callosum size. After reading through some of the more recent abstracts, I understand why the earlier studies concluded otherwise. Without stirring up any trouble, I will just comment that there is a trend towards females having a higher ratio of the size of the corpus callosum relative to total brain size.
There are many, many unequivical gender differences in brain structure and function.
All seriousness aside, I do think that women are intrinsically more intelligent than men. During childbirth, the reason why doctors hold the infant upside down and smack them on the butt is so the penis falls off the smart ones.
