Transcript of A2 Psychology - PSYA3 Gender lesson 1
Why do they opt for gender reassignment? Male & Female brains! Male and female brains are different in size, shape and function.
According to Geschwind & Galaburda (1987) these differences are caused by the levels of testosterone the developing brain is subjected to resulting in masculine or feminine brains. All joking aside..... T A E R O B O

Hidden in the grid below are eight, 7-letter words. Each word begins with the central R and you can move one letter in any direction to the next letter. All of the other letters are used exactly once each. What are the words?

This would explain why gender ambiguous patients 'feel' more of one gender than other. Animal studies have provided evidence to support the effects of testosterone on prenatal development Quadagno et al (1976) identified that female monkeys delibrately exposed to testosterone in the womb were more aggressive than other female monkeys There is however one very controversial study that was carried out by Dr John Money (1972). Money theorised that biological sex (nature) was NOT the over riding factor in gender determination, but rather socialisation (nurture) was the key factor. How are we socialised into a gender?
