sex differences

The Society for Women's Health Research welcomes the recent policy changes by the National Institutes of Health) to establish guidelines requiring the inclusion of both female and male cells and animals in pre-clinical studies that are looking at diseases that affect both women and men.
Who would have thought that in 2014 we would be fighting to ensure that women are included in research on diseases and medical drugs and devices? If you find it outrageous, you are not alone.
Several major gaps continue to exist in sleep research for women. This is in part due to the early work focused on sleep apnea, which primarily affects men. In addition, lack of awareness of sex differences in sleep research has contributed to this knowledge gap.

In Nature, Janine Clayton and Francis Collins call for efforts to ensure that preclinical studies include both male and female cells and animals. We worry, however, that this timely call will reinforce an underlying, unwarranted belief that males and females are fundamentally different.
The bottom line is that women do not get AD more frequently than men. More women are touched by AD at any given time because
I've never bought the "Men Are From Mars, Women are From Venus" shtick, but there are definitely some behaviors that are unique to each sex. I'm not talking about the obvious. What I have in mind are innocent differences of the type Jerry Seinfeld would incorporate into a stand-up routine.
Little real evidence is available to indicate that the brains of men and women are "hardwired" differently, yet, perhaps due to lingering stereotypes, women remain underrepresented in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.
In the study, researchers scanned the brains of 949 young people ages 8 to 22 (428 males and 521 females), using a form of
Our findings on the neural basis of humor processing (in children) may provide some preliminary clues informing theories regarding humor evolution and function in humans.
The fact is, gender-segregated classrooms, even when freely-chosen, create an institutional sexism that reinforces beliefs about men and women's intellectual inequality in the larger society.
Why do we believe fictions in the face of facts? When do the scales fall from our eyes?
While the results aren't definitive, Gauthier said, they're certainly interesting. The study data came from a series of visual
In one part of the study, the researchers asked the volunteers to describe different colors shown to them. They found that
Behavioral science has now shown us that many of the gender differences we habitually chalk up to biology or evolution aren't as set in stone as we assume.
You've been lied to. Or, at the very least, misled. It's simply not true that everything you need to know about life you learned in Kindergarten.
What I hear from women is that they yearn for men to join them in finding that kind of fulfillment, but, sad to say, I don't often hear the same thing from men, which means that there is a gender gap to be closed.
