- Sex Differences in the Brain
Women and men differ not only in physical attributes and reproductive function but also in the way in which they solve intellectual problems. It has been fashionable to insist that these differences are minimal, the consequence of variations in experience during development. The bulk of the evidence suggests, however, that the effects of sex hormones on brain organization occur so early in life that from the start the environment is acting on differently wired brains in girls and boys.

- The Smell Report – Sex-differences
On standard tests of smelling ability – including odour detection, discrimination and identification – women consistently score significantly higher than men. One researcher has claimed that the superior olfactory ability of females is evident even in newborn babies.
- The Smell Report – The human sense of smell
Although the human sense of smell is feeble compared to that of many animals, it is still very acute. We can recognise thousands of different smells, and we are able to detect odours even in infinitesimal quantities.
- Do men and women differ in their capacity to detct odors?
According to studies performed before the turn of the century (Bailey & Nichols, 1884; Bailey & Powell, 1885), it was believed that men possessed greater sensitivity to odors in threshold studies than did women.
In fact, the overwhelming evidence has provided support for the opposite contention, that women possess greater sensitivity to odorants.
- Spatial Skills
University of Chicago research shows that boys outperform girls by age 4 1/2 Researchers at the University of Chicago have demonstrated for the first time that boys have an advantage over girls in their understanding of spatial relationships by age 4 1/2, much earlier than previously thought.
- Are There Differences between the Brains of Males and Females?
That men and women are different, everyone knows that. But, aside from external anatomical and primary and secondary sexual differences, scientists know also that there are many other subtle differences in the way the brains from men and women process language, information, emotion, cognition, etc.

- Mapping the Brain
Technical developments in the field of electrical measurement and recording in the last quarter of the 19th century made possible one of the greatest triumphs of modern neuroscience: the discovery, made by a German psychiatrist named Hans Berger, that the human brain has a continuous electrical activity, and that it can be recorded (see the History of the Electroencephalogram).

- Sperm Competition
Professor Tim Birkhead’s research into the population biology and behavioural ecology of birds has led to the publication of a widely acclaimed book Promiscuity : An Evolutionary History of Sperm Competition and Sexual Conflict. In an excerpt from his recent article in The Independent, he explains why recent revelations about female mating patterns have revolutionised our view of reproduction.
