A recent report by the journal Brain Research shows that the structure of a women’s brains can be effected by birth control pills. The study compared the brains of the women who were taking the pill as birth control with other women and men who were not on the Pill. The birth control acts like steroids being soaked up by the brain, increasing the amount of grey matter in the prefrontal cortex of the brain.
Enlarging the brain for academic purposes may be a good idea, but disrupting the organ’s natural functions could cause serious problems. Numerous studies have been undertaken to determine the effects of hormonal birth control pills on other parts of the body, however this is the first time the brain has been studied in depth and so far the study has shown that oral contraceptives results in an enlarged brain.
Having a larger brain does not equate to an increase of your IQ, so don’t bet on hoping to obtain a better grade on your next exam or to impress your boss at a conference.
