  1. Here’s some context about human sexual dimorphism as reflected in neurophysiology. Male brains have more gray matter, which is where neurons are formed. Females have more white matter, which is more densely structured than the fatty gray matter, and also responsible for connection between neural clusters. It is the white matter that enables us to make connections between two discrete neuronal/symbol packages, enabling abstract thought and communication about things like time, unseen occurrences or phenomena (like a particularly good resource or a danger to be avoided) and also allows for complex, multivariant concepts, like strategy, time management, research, and resource allocation.
