Pero esa energía aparece muchas veces dormida, apagada, y desperdiciada. Vivimos arraigados a convencionalismos incuestionables, llenos de miedos, mitos, mandatos irracionales, imposiciones en vez de explicaciones, o manipulaciones en lugar de negociaciones. La patología disfrazada de camaradería, y la negatividad apoderándose de nuestra vulnerabilidad. Gradualmente, dejamos de reír, vibrar y hasta de…

A breakthrough work in neuroscience and an incisive corrective to a long history of damaging pseudoscience, finally debunking the myth that there is a biological distinction between male and female brains For decades if not centuries, science has backed up society's simple dictum that men and women are hardwired differently, that the world is divided into two different kinds of brains—male and female.
