A 24 - year - old woman was to learn the fact of the shock when he was consulted at Jinan Hospital in Jinan, China. When a doctor consulted a woman complaining of symptoms such as dizziness and nausea, it was found that the woman had troubled with walking ability and speech ability until 7 years old, and the woman was in a state where he could not walk straight even well at the time of examination .

In the future, further investigation will be carried out and we will clarify how the female brain works.
