SACRAMENTO (CBS Sacramento) - The findings of a new study reveal that, while women do have smaller brains than men, women use the grey matter they do have more efficiently than their male counterparts.
According to The Daily Mail, a team of researchers from both the University of California and abroad in Madrid made the observation while trying to reconcile the discrepancy between male and female brain size and the equality of intelligence between the genders.
The female brain is reportedly 8 percent smaller than the male brain, on average.
