review The Gendered Brain The New Neuroscience That Shatters the Myth of the Female Brain Gina Rippon Í 4 Download The Gendered Brain The New Neuroscience That Shatters the Myth of the Female Brain Download ´ 104 S uo we are still bound by outdated stereotypes and assumptions However by exploring new cutting edge neuroscience Rippon urges us to move beyond a binary view of our brains and instead to see these complex organs as highly individualised profoundly adaptable and full of unbounded potentialRigorous timely and liberating The Gendered Brain has huge repercussions for women and men for parents and children and for how we identify ourselve. Stereotypes could be straitjackening our flexible plastic brains So yes challenging them does matter Gina Rippon Gina Rippon is a neuroscientist and wants to debunk the myth of the female brain with her book She wants to make people aware of what neurosexism is and how it developed why we should check sources of information better and what neurotrash is books like Why Men Don t Listen and Women Can t Read Maps She points out how some of the evidences that femalemale brains exist where debunked long ago and how they appear again all the time like in the game Whack a Mole as facts That the science in this field is like an iceberg All the outcomes that proof the female brain are the top The rest will be less publicised or cited by the media even if it s the bigger part of the iceberg that s invisible She does not deny certain differences in general but she shows us that stereotypes can be toxic and that nurture and education is a big issue Some people may ask why it s so important It s mostly about how to rise your child that toys matter for example Lego is a better training for a brain than a doll People often tell girls very early that they will be less good in logical thinking and mathematics that they should focus on being good naturred empaths because their brain is made for being a carermotherwhatever They won t be raised for being scientists their environment makes them believe that they aren t even interested because being nice beautiful and social is what a girls brain wants And that s one of the reasons why women are underrepresented in certain occupational groups and that society clings to their stereotypes Depression is one of many things that can result from the problem I just can say that my own mother wanted me to be a nice little girl When I got home from school with a plastered arm one of her good advices was to act like a girl act like I d be interested in beauty than in science or books For some people violence against girls is justified if they don t act like girls For some people in general violence against others who don t fit in stereotypes or binaries seems to be totally okay And that s just another sad result of the whole thing about the gendered brain And maybe for some children girl boy or enby it s not violence but not being able to fulfill their dreams not being able to be who they want to be It doesn t matter it s an important and interesting topic and I would absolutely recommend that book to everyone who wants to break out of the status uo and ask themselves if we couldn t just move on as science does in oh so modern 2019

Science Is Messy And Mostly Wrong There are several important conclusions for the layman to be drawn from Rippon s well written and rather than merely comprehensive book First brains are incredibly complex organs which we in fact are only beginning to understand Second the purported differences in male and female brains are almost entirely mythical though claims about them persist in both professional and popular accounts But for me the most interesting implication of her history of brain research is just how much fake news there is claiming to be science at any given timeThe latest scientific results are typically taken as revelatory in brain research Tests measurements and experiments correlate with some hypothesis which is considered as scientifically confirmed The results are then reported and cited in various professional journals thus providing credibility to the confirmation This news then finds its way into the popular press as established scientific findings and becomes part of a type of scientific folklore Like any other story this new scientific fact is verified by its sheer ubiuity not just in professional and popular journals but also on the worldwide webYet when it comes to the brain the results of almost all research are subseuently shown to be wrong Errors in experimental design researcher bias spurious correlations bogus references among many other flaws seem almost de riguer in all research into the brain Starting with cranial measurements in the 19th century but continuing with high tech MRI imaging it seems that all the errors to be made have probably been made and than once Sometimes the results of previous research can be re interpreted in light of new findings but mostly old research is simply intellectual junkIt might be argued that this is the way of science and always has been namely that the process of discovering the truth is necessarily messy but that ultimately the right answers or at least better ones emerge from investigative chaos Perhaps But the problem is that there is a reticence to admit that the issue of junk science is permanently recurring Every generation of scientific investigators believe that their results are closer to the truth than previous generations Yet every previous generation has been shown to be profoundly misguided Scientifically speaking it seems a good bet that this generation will also shown to less competent than it now thinks it is The vast bulk of its work will also be shown to be well bunkIn light of Rippon s detailed and informed description of the actual process of science in an area of research which includes not just medicine and physical sciences like chemistry and developmental biology but also softer disciplines like psychology and sociology I wonder at those who think they have a solution to the problem of fake news in politics or business or technology Most news is fake in the same sense that most scientific results are fake that is future events will demonstrate that the conclusions we have reached on the information we have are mostly silly Whatever consensus that exists now about what the truth is will be replaced by a different often contradictory consensus in the futureOnly by convention do we dare term tomorrow s consensus progress Progress is a criterion which means different things to different people Consensus is such only among those who are part of the consensus a self defining and changeable mob The specific criterion of progress probably changes as freuently as the results of the science involved As indeed does the criterion of truth about the news of the day Conditions change interests change economics change all freuently as a result of what the news is scientific or otherwise Thus science itself is a sort of free for all in which the rules get made up as we go along The closest relative to science is perhaps surprisingly literature In fact science at its best seems to be a cadet branch of literature modelled on literature in its attempt to describe interpret and integrate what it sees in imaginative ways Most literature turns out to be junk as well fake news that ends up in discount shops and the

In terms of how well it s written this one star is obviously far too harsh However this book does not represent the science of the field with accuracy An article that argues such better than I could A book like this is very difficult for someone knowledgeable about the field to review seriously It is so chock full of bias that one keeps wondering why one is bothering with it
