Gender Development Research Centre


A review on Human Gender Development by Professor Hines was recently published in Neuroscience & Biobehavioural Reviews. This link will take you to the review.

Highlights of the review include:

Early testosterone (T) exposure and socialization influence gender development.

Early T influences gender role behaviour, gender identity and sexual orientation.

Evidence that early T influences spatial skill or autistic traits is inconsistent.

Early T leads to altered processes of socialization.
