Brain Sees Men As Whole Women As Parts – Are You Buying This?
I do believe the study. A glimpse at the magazine rack in any supermarket checkout line will tell you that women are frequently the focus of sexual objectification. In other words the focus is on a woman's sexual body parts.
New research finds that the brain actually processes images of women differently than those of men, contributing to this trend.
Women are more likely to be picked apart by the brain and seen as parts rather than a whole. Men, on the other hand, are processed as a whole rather than the sum of their parts.
Numerous studies have found that feeling objectified is bad for women. No matter how the study was done women were viewed as body parts.
