Dr. Larry Cahill - The Differences Between Female and Male Brains - part 1

About This Episode

Just as the bodies of men and women are different, so are their brains. 

 In this episode of BrainStorm, host Meryl Comer speaks with Dr. Larry Cahill, Professor of Neurobiology and Behavior at the University of California, Irvine. They discuss why sex matters in neuroscience and how it influences the brain and emotional memory. Dr. Cahill’s research on sex-based differences gained national media attention around the sleep medication Ambien when it showed that women were negatively affected by the prescribed dosing for men.
