There are structural and functional differences between the male and female brain—for example the neural control of hormone secretion is quite different, and so is psychosexual function.
The size of some nuclei in the brain associated with these functions also shows gender differences.
There may be other differences but this is an area where the politics of gender interact with biomedical science.
