The Gender Development Research Centre carries out research into many areas, including but not limited to:
- Mini-puberty and the influence of androgens, such as testosterone, during prenatal and neonatal development on gender-typical behaviour and development
- Biological and environmental factors that mediate or moderate sex differences in young children’s aggression
- Whether children’s cognitive understanding of gender mediates hormonal influences on behaviour
- The influence of androgens during prenatal development on brain structure in individuals with disorders of sex development (DSDs)
- DSDs and gender dysphoria
- Evolution of non-binary gender identities and overlap between autistic traits and gender dysphoria
- The development of sexual orientation from childhood to adulthood and identifying early predictors of later sexual orientation
- The relation between sexual orientation and mental health
- Cognitive development in early infancy; why certain cognitive traits show sex differences early in life which then remain stable despite changes in social attitudes
- The effect of early postnatal testosterone on mental rotation in infants at 3 and 5 months, and whether there is a sex difference in joint attention in infants between 3-5 months
- Hormonal and parental contributions to infants' mental rotation abilities
- What is the behavioural phenotype for individuals with DSDs and how can the psychological development of people with DSDs be optimized?
- Do essentialist explanations of gender differences have negative consequences for society, and, if so, how can these be counteracted?
