Sex and gender are largely dichotomized into a nature/nurture dichotomy, with sex representing biology and gender representing culture. Are the two really so separable? And, if they are one of the primary ways we categorize ourselves, what do these categories really mean according to empirical research in psychology and neuroscience? In this course, we will cover biopsychological research in gender/sex, and we will also discuss critiques of these approaches. Topics include sexual differentiation and development, behavioral neuroendocrinology, sexuality, clinical conditions and health, evolution, social behaviors, differences/similarities, neuroanatomy, and behavioral genetics. Prereqs for the class are one of the following: PSYCH 111, 112, 114 or 115; and PSYCH 230 or 240, and the course is department permission only. Students who have the necessary prerequisites and would like to take the class should e-mail wsp.advising@umich.edu.
