Is There Neurosexism in Functional Neuroimaging Investigations of Sex Differences?
The neuroscientific investigation of sex differences has an unsavoury past, in which scientific claims reinforced and legitimated gender roles in ways that were not scientifically justified. Feminist
A Role for Biology in Gender-Related Behavior
We take the opportunity of the 35th anniversary of Sex Roles to examine the journal and the field of gender research from a biological perspective. We discuss the limited coverage of biological
A New Law for Time Perception.
TLDR
A consistent intercept difference in the identified relationship linked the log-linear size of the absolute error of estimation against the logarithmic magnitude of the target duration at which such error was recorded provides a new descriptive, empirical relationship for time perception of brief temporal intervals.
“There’s so much more to it than what I initially thought”: Stepping into researchers’ shoes with a class activity in a first year psychology survey course
In psychology, it is widely agreed that research methods, although central to the discipline, are particularly challenging to learn and teach, particularly at introductory level. This pilot study
An Innovative Appraisal of a CV
Abstract In research and in academia, appointments and promotions are mainly determined by the quantity and quality of the research activity, as rendered in the CV. Our proposal is to use a different
Australopithecus sediba: A New Species of Homo-Like Australopith from South Africa
TLDR
Combined craniodental and postcranial evidence demonstrates that this new species of Australopithecus shares more derived features with early Homo than any other australopith species and thus might help reveal the ancestor of that genus.

TLDR
The results revealed that initial gender differences in spatial ability disappeared following treatment in the experimental but not in the control group, and intervention and processing strategies were essential in reducing gender Differences in spatial abilities.
