The Secret of sex : finding the essence of man and woman by David Stewart( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of a four-part series presenting research and breakthroughs in the field of human genetics. This segment examines aspects of reproduction, as well as what being male or female means at the cellular level. Dr. Roy Levin, a reproductive physiologist, uses an FMRI scanner to glean surprising images from a couple having intercourse. Startling physiological effects are seen over a mere six months in a woman who begins testosterone therapy. Experts include Marc Breedlove, Professor of Neuroscience at Michigan State University; Dr. Peter Goodfellow, authority on the Y chromosome; Professor John Burn, clinical geneticist at Newcastle University; Dr. John Manning, leading specialist on testosterone; and Dr. Melissa Hines, Professor of Psychology at City University who has studied testosterone's influence on how children play
The nine months that made you( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This programme explores the secrets of what makes a long, healthy and happy life. It turns out that a time you can't remember - the nine months you spend in the womb - could have more lasting effects on you today than your lifestyle or genes. It is one of the most powerful and provocative new ideas in human science, and it was pioneered by a British scientist, Professor David Barker. His theory has inspired a field of study that is revealing how our time in the womb could affect your health, personality, and even the lives of your children"--SBS TV website
How to build a human( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The third in a four-part series of programmes looking at the origins of human life and the way in which our increasing understanding of genetics may affect this in the future. This part is about sexual reproduction. We see a man and woman enter an FMRI scanner which will produce images showing the physiology of coitus. There is an interview with a woman who is genetically a male but whose brain, after a course of testosterone, looks different when scanned. Sexual determination in the foetus is discussed with endoscopic film of foetal development. There is a discussion about genetic selection and finally, children talk about their perceptions of gender difference

Is your brain male or female? = Ni de tou nao shi nan hai shi nü ?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Presented by Alice Roberts and Michael Mosley, this programme investigates whether or not there is really a difference between male and female brains and, if so, are the differences between the sexes the result of nature or nurture? A group of both sexes are put through a series of spatial cognition tests and it showed that the men were more successful at these than the women. When it came to tests which involved reading emotions, the women scored the highest results. Mosley believes people are born with these differences whilst Roberts feels they are learned. Mosley looks at how monkeys respond to different toys - the females were drawn to the dolls whilst the males were fascinated by trucks and cars and barely noticed the dolls. Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, an expert in autistic spectrum disorders, believes that hormones in the womb affect the development of the brain in such a way as to alter cognitive behaviour after birth, particularly in relation to systemising. The higher the child's pre-natal testosterone seems to be related to the speed at which social skills develop and their ability to solve cognitive puzzles etc. Detailed MRI scans of male and female brains show very different patterns of neuronal activity which might explain certain stereotypes such as women being better at multi-tasking. Roberts explores how gender stereotypes are perhaps more ingrained than we think and she undergoes an experiment to test pain thresholds in men and women. Studies into the way strokes affect men and women's brains differently may help in the treatment of strokes by providing more effective gender specific treatments
Why aren't more women in science? : top researchers debate the evidence( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Contemporary knowledge about women's participation in science is presented in this collection of fifteen essays written by top researchers on gender differences in ability. The essayists were chosen to reflect the diversity and complexity of views on the topic, about which knowledge has been accumulating and evolving for decades. The editors provide an introduction that defines the key issues and embeds them in historical context and a conclusion that synthesizes and integrates the disparate views
