Fact: A girl's brain has 15 to 20 percent more activity than a boy's brain at a given time. Explanation: Male and female brains are wired differently. The male brain distributes its brain activity into less parts than the female brain. Different sections of the female brain can work together at the same time in ways that the male brain cannot.
The truth is that neuroscientists have identified very few reliable differences between boys' and girls' brains.

But these global differences reflect physical maturation more than mental development.

At birth, the average brain of boys is between 12-20% larger than that of girls. The head circumference of boys is also larger (2%) than that of girls. However, when the size of the brain is compared to body weight at this age, there is almost no difference between boys and girls. So, a girl baby and a boy baby who weigh the same will have.
