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

Supposing the finding can be repeated, I'd like a genetic study on the groups where spatial ability is similar between sexes that would allow comparison with other groups that lack such parity. It may be a product of evolution and historical, local pressures, rather than social conditioning. However, I think there are plenty of people who do not make sufficient allowance for phenotypic variation given a particular genome.
