From the Wikipedia article on testosterone, comes this:
There are some differences in a male and female brain (the result of different testosterone levels). A clear difference is the size: the male human brain is, on average, larger; however, in females (who generally do not have as high testosterone levels the corpus callosum is proportionally larger. This means that the effect of testosterone is a greater overall brain volume, but a decreased connection between the hemispheres.

One wonders if the connection between the hemispheres relates to women being better multi-taskers, allegedly.
