Abstract:

Testosterone-it affects a man's strength, sex drive, desire for status, and parenting skills. It even affects how long he will live. This program explores the science behind masculinity and the central role testosterone plays in male development. At Texas A & M, Dr. Gerianne Alexander tracks the eye movements of infants and the gender-based preferences they reveal. Further links between testosterone and behavior emerge at the University of Texas, where researchers correlate higher basal levels of the hormone with a preference for achieving status over earning money. In Jamaica, a revealing study analyzes the testosterone levels of men with varying degrees of fatherly commitment.
