Main article content

Dr Arlene Taylor is a leading expert on brain function and the founder of Realization Inc. and she joins Clayton to talk about how our brains operate differently to each other’s.

We’ve all learnt so much more about the brain in the last few decades thanks to the rise in technology but Dr Taylor says that the brain is so complex that even she knows only a little bit about it. What they are starting to understand though, is how men and women think differently because of our wiring. Have you ever wondered why guys have time to cut across five lanes to take the next exit whereas the average girl will probably kick herself and do a U-turn at the next exit instead? A big part of that would be because the brains of men generally see further into the future but girls have a shorter, wider range of foresight. Working together, Dr Taylor argues, would help society achieve things more efficiently and effectively than what we tend to do – argue about it.

So what else can be explained by our neurological wiring? Finding lost objects? Multi-tasking? Using manuals to build things?

Dr Taylor also teaches us how to excercise our brains to slow the effects of aging. It can also enhance our memory and other brain functions.

Listen in here to find out how our genders could be affecting the way we do things the way we do them. You can find out more about Dr Taylor’s research here and don’t forget to let us know what the difference between you and your partner is on Clayton’s Facebook page!
