We knew it all along, but now science proves that women are more generous than men.
A study out of the University of Zurich scanned brains. Many of them. The answers are right in the film. Women’s striatum, the brain’s reward center, activate when women act generously. When men act selfishly their striatum flickers with action.
To see the differences in men and women two experiments were staged. College aged men and women participated in a game where they decided to keep more money for themselves or accept less money but share it with another person. During this exercise, the researchers monitored their brain activity with a functional magnetic resonance machine (fMRI).
The good news is, the behavior can be learned!
