TLDR
Comparative neuroanatomical findings, together with studies of ontogeny, phylogeny, and paleontology, indicate that the human forebrain has evolved and expanded to its great size, while retaining commonalities of three neural assemblies that reflect an ancestral relationship to reptiles, early mammals, and late mammals.

TLDR
In this article I cite more recent neuroanatomical and brain imaging studies that provide further evidence of disparities in structure and function of the brains of men and women.
WOMEN: A MORE BALANCED BRAIN?
. On the basis of knowledge prior to 1988, Ashbrook pointed out that whereas most men are primarily dependent on the left cerebral hemisphere (“dominant hemisphere”) for verbally related functions,

Recent findings suggest that the development of the behavioral triad in question may have depended on the evolution of the thalamocingulate division of the limbic system, a derivative from early mammals.
A PROPOSED MECHANISM OF EMOTION
TLDR
The following discussion presents some anatomic, clinical and experimental data dealing with the hypothalamus, the gyrus cinguli, the hippocampus and their interconnections, which are proposed as representing theoretically the anatomic basis of the emotions.
Cerebral hemispheric asymmetry in humans. Cortical speech zones in 100 adults and 100 infant brains.
TLDR
The findings suggest that a higher percentage of persons may have right-sided cerebral representation for speech than has been assumed previously and a predetermined morphological asymmetry contributes to establishing the ultimate pattern of cerebral speech representation following an early insult to a predisposed hemisphere.
