Sex/gender differences in brain activity - it's time for a biopsychosocial approach to cognitive neuroscience.

Hausmann, M. (2021) 'Sex/gender differences in brain activity - it's time for a biopsychosocial approach to cognitive neuroscience.', Cognitive neuroscience., 12 (3-4). pp. 178-179.


There is compelling evidence that men and women differ in brain activity in long-term memory and other cognitive functions. However, until the origins of sex/gender differences in brain activity, and consequently behavior, are not fully understood, the factor sex/gender should be considered as imperfect proxy of a combination of yet unknown biological and psychosocial factors underlying these sex/gender differences. The key avenue to a full understanding of sex/gender differences in brain and behavior depends largely on cognitive neuroscience investigating sex/gender differences in brain activity within a biopsychosocial approach.
