I agree, which is why I'm pro-choice. Now if only men could choose not to pay child support, we'd be even.
"the most important connections are strengthened and the others are left to wither. Rather than indicating a loss of ability, pruning is generally taken to mean that a brain region has become more specialized."[/quote]That was written by the writer of the article, not the study the article was based on. I didn't want to link to the article itself, because it's behind a paywall. There's simply a lack of grey matter, nothing more. Look-up how psychopaths lack grey matter in regions of the brain associated with empathy. You'll see nothing made-up about specialization & pruning, because the writer of the pregnancy article didn't want to sound sexist. My mistake for a poor choice of article.
Great idea. Just go do those experiments in some other country & currency.
