Empathizing, driven by the social brain, means the capacity to predict and to respond to the behavior of agents by inferring their mental status with an appropriate emotion. Systemizing, based on the analytic brain, is the capacity to predict and to respond to the behavior of non-agentive deterministic systems by analyzing input-operation-output relations and inferring the rules of systems. However WM associated with the social and analytic brain as indicated by sex differences remains to be investigated. In this study, we demonstrated WM microstructures with sexual dimorphism, which may reflected the neural underpinning of the social and analytic brain.
