WASHINGTON — Swiss researchers have revealed an alternative of how men and women’s brain work differently as it has long been said that both brains is wired in a different way.

A large- scale study by a research team at the University of Basel focused on deciding the gender-dependent relationship between feelings, memory performance and brain activity.

With the help of 3,398 test subjects from four sub-trials, the researchers were able to demonstrate that females rated emotional image content – particularly negative content – as more emotionally stimulating than their male partners did.

In the case of natural images, however, there were no gender-related differences in emotional appraisal. In a consequent memory test, female participants could freely recall fundamentally a larger number of pictures than the male participants.

Surprisingly however, women had a specific preference over men when reviewing positive pictures. “This would suggest that gender-dependent differences in emotional processing and memory are due to different mechanisms,” says study leader Dr Annette Milnik.

Using fMRI information from 696 test subjects, the researchers were also able to show that stronger appraisal of negative emotional image content by the female participants is connected to expanded brain action in motoric regions. The result would support the common belief that women were more sincerely expressive than men, clarified Dr Klara Spalek, lead author of the study.

This study is important, because many neuropsychiatric diseases also show gender-related differences.

The results will be published in the latest issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.

LONDON — A group of Canadian researchers has found that the “woman on top’ sex position is most perilous for men, as this position is responsible for half of all penile fractures in the bedroom.

Penile fracture is a relatively uncommon clinical condition that causes fear and shame to the patient and can hamper sexual functions.

For the study, the group took a look at three hospitals in Campinas, a city of three million people in Brazil, used hospital’s records and in some cases talked with the patients directly, Telegraph reported.

“Our study upholds the way that sex with ‘woman on top’ is the possibly least secure sexual position identified with penile fracture,” the authors noted.

They took a looked at patients with suspected “penile fractures” over a 13-year period.

50% of them, with average age 34, reported hearing a crack before experiencing pain, with some also suffering swelling. Some of them waited up to six hours before seeking for medical help.

“Our hypothesis is that when woman is on top, she generally controls the movement with her whole body weight landing on the erect penis, not being able to interrupt it when the penis suffers a wrong way penetration,” the creators noted.

The research was published in the Advances in Urology journal.
