What: “The Physiology of Gender”
Who: Elaine M. Hull, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, Florida State University
Genes and hormones are the major influences on sex differentiation, though stress and social factors also affect the process. There are gender differences in sensory, motor, and intellectual abilities, and emotions, which are also influenced by physiological factors. Complications in these processes can lead to gay, lesbian, and transgender development, and the difficulties that such people encounter.
