Chaired by Susie Ferguson, this panel asks what we think about the idea of there being a different male and female brain?

The speakers are Emily Writes, Salvatore Gargiulo, Dr Annette Henderson, and Kath Akuhata-Brown. The event was recorded at Wellington's City Gallery in association with Eva Rothschild's video Boys and Sculpture.
