I'm not ignoring you honey

A study at Sheffield university discovered that men have greater difficulty understanding women's speech than other men's. It seems that the cause is that whilst men's speech is processed (by the listener) in the speech parts of the brain, women's speech is processed by the areas of the brain normally responsible for music.

How this might be used to improve intergender communication is left as an exercise for the reader.
