This chapter presents research focusing on the question of whether there are sex differences in the kinematic organization of movement. In addition, the relative contributions of gonadal steroids, the central nervous system (CNS), and of body morphology to the development and subsequent adult expression of sex-typical patterns of movement are discussed. The chapter considers sexual differentiation of the kinematic organization of behavior during juvenile play, dodging to protect a food item and contact righting.

Keywords:   sex differences, kinematic organization, movement, gonadal steroids, central nervous system, body morphology
