[Introduction]

In 2012 psychologist Paul Irwing of the University of Manchester published a study 
concluded by the phrase: "Psychologically, men and women are almost a different
species". Behaviorally men and women are indeed different human animals but whether 
their brains are also wired uniquely is a debatable question. Why men are not able 
to become goodMums, and why men and women show distinct propensity to neurological 
disorders onset... 
To answer all these intriguing questions we are going to review the most recent
 
studies from the field of brain imaging, neurobiology, and physiology, 
in an attempt to find out whether “Men are from Mars, and Women are from Venus”.
