Brain Gender

Melissa Hines

How important are biological factors, such as hormones, in shaping our sexual destinies? This book brings a social development, as well as a biological and clinical psychological, perspective to bear on the factors that shape our development as male or female, and that cause individuals within each sex to differ from one another in sex-related behaviors. Topics covered include sexual orientation, childhood play, spatial, mathematical and verbal abilities, nurturance, aggression, dominance, handedness, brain structure, and gender identity (transexualism).
