The Female Brain

How Women Think

The main thesis of the book is that women 's behavior is different from that of men due, in large measure, to hormonal differences. Brizendine says that the human female brain is affected by the following hormones: estrogen , progesterone , testosterone , oxytocin , neurotransmitters dopamine , serotonin , and that there are differences in the architecture of the brain prefrontal cortex , hypothalamus , amygdala that regulates such hormones and neurotransmitters. The Female Brain has seven chapters, each one of which is dedicated to a specific part of a woman's life such as puberty , motherhood, and menopause , or a specific dimension of a women's emotional life such as feelings, love and trust , and sex. The book also includes three appendices on hormone therapy , postpartum depression , and sexual orientation. The book sold well but received mixed reviews, because a number of journalists, popular science writers, and scientists questioned the validity of some of the content. Brizendine was given the tongue-in-cheek Becky Award , which is given to "people or organizations who have made outstanding contributions to linguistic misinformation".
