← New study disputes notion that men are better at spatial thinking than women

Neodarwinian's Avatar Jump to comment 1 by Neodarwinian

Women receiving androgens ( such as in sex changes and other procedures ) have improved spatial ability. The converse seems also true.

There may be variances that account for one society being matrilineal and the other patrilineal that are not fully cultural , but more physical in nature. I think this study reaches too far and is too well opposed by the evidence we already have here. Let this be subjected to repeatability and review. I would even go so for as to say this is a rear guard action by the nurture crew.

PS The break away point is rotating objects in three dimensional space, not two.

PSS Matrilineal DOES not mean run by women anymore than patrilineal means run by men!

What difference does it make to the truth of the matter what anyone wants, PERSON?
