Looking at Art: Women Appreciate Beauty Better Than Men

Patrons looking at art

According to a study done by researchers at San Carlos Clinical Hospital in Madrid, female brains react differently than male brains when looking at pieces of art. Scans done on both men and women while looking at pieces of art showed that brain activity increased on the right side only for men, and on both sides for women. The researchers believe that this has to do with how men and women process spatial information. Men, they suggest, look at the picture as a whole, while women, in addition to looking at the whole picture, pay attention to the smaller details.

Fransisco Ayala of the University of California, Irvine, believes that these differences are not recent, but rather arose early on from our ancient human ancestors.
