Neuroscience: A Connection Between Sex And Gender

In this article scientists look at brain activity and hypothesize that there is a link between an individuals sex and the way they think/act. Their findings support the idea that in parts what we constitute as gender may be biological. Their research is restricted by the use of MRI scanners and PET machines that are immobile. The subjects are then given scenarios and are not taking part in real life events. Continued research would be interesting. How much of what different sexes think is linked to biology and how much is it taught? While reading this I wondered maybe males use different parts of their brains because they are socialized to think a certain way from birth.
What do you think?
