Researchers from Rockefeller University have identified what they claim to be 'remarkable' differences between the way the male and female brains respond to stress.
A new study confirms previous findings that males have a higher risk of ASD than females. However, researchers discovered, regardless of gender, siblings born after a female child with autism had an increased risk of ASD than those born after a male on the spectrum.
A new study reports a genetic predisposition in combination with early life stress appear to be more detrimental to males over females and may produce the social avoidance often associated with autism spectrum disorders.
A new study reports an area of the brain associated with emotion appears to undergo accelerated maturation in teenage girls with PTSD, but not in their male peers with the condition.
Researchers have discovered biological differences between males and females in the molecular regulation of synapses in the hippocampus.
Women have better cognitive performance when in higher temperature environments. Researchers found women performed better on verbal and math tests when the room temperature is warmer, while male performance peaks in colder room climates.
In the face of natural disasters, women tend to take the risks far more seriously but have trouble convincing men their concerns are a priority.
We end up conveying information at about the same rate, regardless of whether we speak slowly or fast, a new study reports.
A drop of testosterone under the tongue allowed women to better orient themselves in navigational tests, a new study reports.
A new study reports girls with autism tend to be more socially motivated and have more intimate friendships than autistic boys.
A large scale SPECT imaging study reveals women's brains are significantly more active in more regions than males, including the prefronal cortex and limbic areas. Visual and areas associated with coordination were more active in males, researchers noted.
