Pills and big brains

Did you miss the Telegraph article in 2010 that reported that “Contraceptive pills increase the size of certain parts of women’s brains, improving memory and social skills”?

That report was based on a small study that looked at brain structure of 14 men and 28 women. Although this is interesting, it is too small to draw any conclusion about the brain structure between men and women, and between women taking Pill and those who are not.

This is probably a storm in the teacup and men need not be jealous at this news.
