What We Are Reading Today: Gender and Our Brains by Gina Rippon

Neuroscientist Gina Rippon painstakingly refutes in this exhaustive study long-held beliefs about gender’s role in the development and functioning of the brain. 

The book is, at the core, concerned with the question of whether male and female brains are different. 

Rippon, a British professor of cognitive neuroimaging, reviews the history of studies of the gendered brain.

“We have to pay more attention to how our experiences drive our brain architecture. It’s a bit like trees that grow on windy plains. Their biological drivers make them grow upward, but the winds make them twist or grow branches on only one side,” she said in recent comments published in time.com.

Much of Gender and Our Brains is written for the scientifically savvy reader. 

“It’s a reminder that gender messaging is never a nonissue. It helps sell products, supports power structures and, for better and worse, tells boys and girls what the human tribe expects of them,” said Karen Sandstrom in a review published in WashingtonPost.com.

The majority of the available tools designed to help you manage your complex stressors are a distraction from the underlying road blocks that keep your body from healing itself. There is a much better way to rebalance and restore your health so you can resume doing all the things that bring you joy, peace and happiness.

The intense complex stressors  Christopher Lee Maher experienced as a child and as a Navy SEAL inspired him to embody, study and develop powerful systems that create instantaneous, permanent change at a conscious, unconscious and subconscious level.
