Professor Hines will be in Copenhagen on 30th November to give a lecture on "Mini-puberty and human gender-related behaviour".

This lecture will be part of a three day meeting on mini-puberty and puberty. Professor Hines' lecture will discuss work from the Gender Development Research Centre linking hormone exposure during mini-puberty (a period of gonadal hormone production that occurs during the first few months of infancy) to later gender-typical play and to expressive vocabulary.
