The brain has several important parts which has each function. Some parts of the brain such as the cerebral cortex is composed of several components which is very influential in controlling the movement of conscious and cognitive abilities, as well as information of processing, language and speech, lateralization, emotions and consciousness. At this stage of development, there is a difference between the development of the brains of women and men. Some parts of the female brain tends to grow faster than the development of the male brain.
