Males, Females, and Behavior: Toward Biological Understanding

by

Males, Females, and Behavior: Toward Biological Understanding Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In nine chapters, contributors explore how genetic, hormonal, and neurological factors affect the behavior of males and females within complex environmental settings. Based on the latest research, the essays theorize about the causes of variation in sex differences in behavior and related phenomena. Sex differences in behavior are examined as a cross-species phenomenon and as having numerous biological as well as environmental determinants.

Book News Annotation:

Expanded versions of 13 presentations to a meeting in Minot, North Dakota (no date noted) on the biological basis of sexual orientation and sex-typical behavior. Combining studies of humans and laboratory work with animal models, they cover genetic and perinatal influences on differences in behavior between males and females, neurological manifestations of perinatal sexual differentiation, and neuro-cognitive aspects of the behavior differences. Among the interesting findings reported is that girls who are masculine and boys who are feminine tend to do better on merit tests.
