Humans have at least 10^11 neurons in the brain, so your figure is off by two orders of magnitude (nit-picky, but true).

Wouldn't CC size and greater interconnectivity necessarily be correlated? If you have a series of wires, all approximately the same diameter, adding more connections would have to make the bundle bigger. The CC isn't a region that has connections, it's just the wiring that connects the two hemispheres.

"We also attune ourselves to a wider perspective in thought processing, by responding to nuances in body language, tone of voice, and other non-verbal clues. Our brains are virtual superhighways of whole-thought processing!"

I'm not even sure what this means, in a scientific sense. Are you saying men do not do this?

That said, women do tend to have a massa intermedia more often than men. This is a commisure (axon bundles) that interconnect the left and right thalamuses, with an unknown function.

I just want to advocate care with regards to making inferences about certain facts.

Quite a few bloggers have been doing this lately with respect to neuroscience-related topics...


Ha! Wow, this post is over 3 years old... no one will see my response!
