Brain Gender

This chapter presents a synthesis of the discussions in the preceding chapters. Gonadal hormone influences on human brain development and human behavior, and the implications of hormonal influences on brain gender are discussed. It is argued that understanding the range of factors that influence behaviors, including, but not limited to, hormones, can permit the choice of levels at which to intervene, should intervention seem desirable. Even though a psychological characteristic may be found to involve innate predispositions, either genetic or hormonal, it might be preferable to change it through other mechanisms.

Keywords:   sex difference, gender difference, hormones, gonadal hormone influences, brain development, innate predispositions
