New research finds that young girls and boys have "indistinguishable" math abilities — contradicting the idea that men largely dominate STEM fields because their brains are wired that way.

Investigators are unable to know gender, by looking at brain scans of children tackling math problems. There are no biological differences between gender. What we tell boys and girls about math is much more important explaining boy dominance in STEM.
Study finds no difference between the brain patterns of young girls and boys when doing math tasks. More evidence that the math gender gap is not biological. —via

David Geary on the new study finding similar patterns of brain activity in boys and girls as they engaged in basic math tasks. Original Article:
“...the new study makes a compelling case that factors other than biological differences explain why girls are less likely to pursue degrees and jobs in math and science” Math Looks The Same In The Brains Of Boys And Girls, Study Finds
"The results of this study are not too surprising because typically we don't see sex differences at the ages assessed in this study or for the types of math tasks they did, which were fairly simple"
