Women's brains wired for emotion

A woman's brain is designed to remember and feel emotions more than the brains of men.

An American study, which casts light on the truism that husbands never recall marital tiffs while wives never forget, found that females' responses to emotion were more active than males'.

Twenty-four volunteers from both sexes had their brains scanned while they were shown a variety of ordinary and evocative photographs, such as a landscape or a dead body. Three weeks after seeing the photos women's recall was up to 15 per cent more accurate, said the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Researchers said the study showed a woman's brain was wired to be aware of and remember emotions. They said the study also showed that generally women had better memories. But they added brains constantly changed with experience.

They said the study could lead to research into why more women suffered depression than men.
