Pontus 399 Sex-differences in cognitive abilities and behaviours. 1 2 Most think that when discussing the differences between men and women when it comes to 3 cognitive ability, most look at the issue in a socio-cultural point of view that the difference is 4 degrading one sex over the other. When thinking of the term “cognitive abilities” immediately 5 people tend to compare on the topic of I.Q., while the differences this paper referred to are solely 6 in the inherent cognitive abilities such as facial recognition, emotions, or memory. While there is 7 statically significant evidence proving the variances, they are very small and are enough to be 8 ignored. 9 According to an article by Bruce Goldman, who references other sources of research into the 10 biological and social differences between a male and female, there is considerable difference in 11 cognitive abilities manipulated by sex differences. Differences in cognitive abilities start to surface 12 at an early age at around 2 to 3-month old infants.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
