Here's the study: Sex beyond the genitalia: The human brain mosaic

The findings are interesting, but the conclusion seems unwarranted (even sensational.) Sure, there may be a large overlap between the male distribution and the female distribution for each sexually dimorphic structural feature, but that doesn't imply that you can't identify the sex of a given brain with very high accuracy by considering all such features, thus categorizing brains into two very distinct groups.

Of course. It's a modern study about gender.

"Sensational" is what I was thinking too. The title could have been "Measurements prove there's no such things as a 'male' or 'female' height." But men are still taller on average.
