Neuroscientists have conducted research which shows and confirms that brain size differs between males and females. Different parts of the brain when analyzed, were found to differ in size in both males and females.

Certain areas such as the limbic system which controls emotions and the problem solving part of the brain were bigger in women. On the other hand, males had a bigger amygdala (part that controls sexual behavior) and a bigger parietal cortex which controls spatial awareness. However, regarding intelligence, the average IQ scores are the same for both men and women.
