Left Side, Right Side, Offside

Is there anything inrepparttar dominance ofrepparttar 146622 left side ofrepparttar 146623 brain in mathematical ability?

Are boys better than girls in mathematics, because of left brain dominance?

The concept of left brain and right brain thinking developed from repparttar 146624 research inrepparttar 146625 late 1960s by an American neurosurgeon Roger W Sperry. He was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1981.

I came across a variation of this theory (which Iíll callrepparttar 146626 gender theory) inrepparttar 146627 late 1970s. The gender theory was put forward as a means of explaining why at that time, boys out - performed girls inrepparttar 146628 field of mathematics.

The left brain/ right brain theory says thatrepparttar 146629 left side ofrepparttar 146630 brain is logical, analytical and objective.

The gender theory says that this "masculine" side ofrepparttar 146631 brain is assertive, aggressive and authoritative

The left brain/ right brain theory says thatrepparttar 146632 right side of repparttar 146633 brain is random, emotional, spontaneous, and subjective.

The gender theory says that this "feminine" side ofrepparttar 146634 brain is emotional, passive, creative and holistic

The gender theory then says that dominant side of boys brains is repparttar 146635 left side, hence their mathematical skills are better.

Behavioural psychologists set out to prove or disprove this gender theory by measuring passive/ aggressive tendencies. There were a lot of dodgy psychological experiments performed.

Animal psychologists fed chickens male hormones and measuredrepparttar 146636 increased peck rate. Other psychologists worked with small babies. It was found for example, that when a researcher blew on repparttar 146637 babyís face while it was lying inrepparttar 146638 pram, a girl baby would turn over and go back to sleep, whereas a boy baby would react in a more belligerent manner, perhaps givingrepparttar 146639 psychologist a whack with his rattle.

Currently, over four billion people or eighty percent ofrepparttar 146555 world population use herbology for some forms of healthcare. Ayurvedic practitioners, homeopathic practitioners, naturopathic practitioners, traditional Oriental practitioners and Native American Indians commonly utilize herbology.

Common illnesses and conditions that herbology can benefit are digestive problems, sinusitis, Chron's disease and irritable bowel syndrome. Other conditions like arthritis, post-cancer treatment, fertility issues, menopause, PMS, colds and even flu can be helped with herbology as well.
