Meet the neuroscientist shattering the myth of the gendered brain | Science | The Guardian
When she is not in the lab using state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques to study developmental disorders such as autism, she is out in the world, debunking the “pernicious” sex differences myth: the idea that you can “sex” a brain or that there is such a thing as a male brain and a female brain.

Fantastic article. Pair with the writing of Oliver Sacks about neural plasticity. Then look at all of education in a whole new light. Then realize that it also puts our self view in a whole different light. Excellent.
