The Science of Sexual Orientation. This is a chapter-by-chapter summary of my book, Gay, Straight, and the Reason Why: The Science of Sexual Orientation (Oxford University Press, ).Please see the book itself for a much more detailed account of the science, along with illustrations and over references to the scientific literature.. Chapter 1: What is Sexual Orientation? ‘The core disturbance involves an acute generalised impairment of cognitive function that affects orientation, attention, memory, and planning and organisational skills.’ ‘The tactical screen was selected on the device's multipurpose display to assist in navigational orientation.’.

This volume of Progress in Brain Research documents recent developments and research findings in relation to sex and how the brain’s function and behavior differs from men to ic areas include cerebral function, morphology and organization, sexual dimorphism, neural origins,and genetics and epigenetics, as well as potential causes/affects of stress, pain, sexual orientation and.   Early behavioural evidence comes from studies of hypogonadal men who, due to abnormal gonadal function have low or no circulating testosterone, and as a result exhibit impaired sexual functioning. Once these men receive testosterone replacement therapy, their sexual function is restored to normal (Wang et al., ).

The essential features of AIDS dementia complex (ADC) are disabling cognitive impairment accompanied by motor dysfunction, speech problems and behavioral change. Cognitive impairment is characterised by mental slowness, trouble with memory and poor lty: Infectious disease, neurology. Answers to Your Questions For a Better Understanding oF sexUal orientation & HomosexUality & Since , the American Psychological Association has called on psychologists to take the lead in removing the stigma of mental illness that has long been associated with lesbian, gay, and bisexual orientations. The discipline of psychology is concerned.

Sex, sexual orientation and sex hormones influence human cognitive function Doreen Kimura Superior performance by women on a task requiring object location memory has challenged the traditional view that men excel on all spatial by: 1.

Introduction. Sex differences in certain cognitive functions are well documented. Males, an average, outperform females in the tests of mental rotation, spatial perception, mathematical problem-solving and spatial navigation, while females do better than males in the tests of phonological and semantic fluency, perceptual speed, and memory for object locations (e.g.

Voyer et al., Cited by:   Frequent sex linked to higher cognitive function in seniors. According to a new study having sex frequently can boost brain power. The study from Oxford University was published today in The Journals of Gerontology, Series B: Psychological and Social Sciences.

In the following entry, findings of gender differences in cognitive functions will be reviewed, with a specific focus on examining to what extent the pattern and magnitude of these differences change over the adult life span.

First, results on gender differences found in memory and cognition tasks in childhood and young adulthood are presented. As expected, men outperformed women on tests of mental rotation and line angle judgment, whereas women outperformed men on tests of category fluency and object location memory.

Performance on all tests declined with age but significantly more so for men than for by: Conclusion: The overall pattern of results is consistent with and extends previous work implying that sex-related biases in low-level visual processing play an important role in the expression of Author: Doreen Kimura.

influence brain development and organization as well as cognitive functions and abilities. Sexually related hormones affect physical and mental development, cognition, mood, emotional responses, motivation, and behavior.

Gender is significantly involved in determining sexual orientation and defining personality. And it should be noted that the. As a member of the amphetamine drug family, ecstasy does have the potential to affect a fetus if the female uses ecstasy whilepregnant.

Long-term use can result in depression, cognitive and memory impairment, and decreased sexual response. Not very much; testosterone does not contribute to sexual desire.

A great deal for women, but not very much for men. A great deal; sexual desire is primarily a biological process. Not very much; primate sexual desire is affected by many interacting processes.

Loss of testosterone in older men is associated with a substantial long-term impairment in visual and verbal memory, visuospatial functioning, visuomotor scanning, and visual memory,1 and with increased incidence and earlier onset of depression.2 These findings are supported by rodent studies in which orchiectomy has been shown to impair spatial memory in Y-maze testing3 and Morris water maze testing,4 with testosterone administration preserving by: A person's sexual orientation is not an either/or matter; sexual orientation exists along a continuum, with attraction exclusively to the opposite sex on one end of the continuum and attraction exclusively to the same sex on the other end.

A recent study investigated the SNP variants of SORL1 with cognitive function and gender and found that a possible protective effect of the SNPs, such as the rs, influence cognitive function in a sex-specific manner, such that men with this SNP have better performance on verbal, episodic and spatial memory at least before but detrimental effects for women’s by: A study of some Dutch men and women aged 85 years found that the women tended to have better cognitive speed and a better memory than the men, despite the fact that significantly more of the women had limited formal education compared to the men.

This may be due to better health. parallel sex differences in a clump of nerve cells in the human brain—parts of the interstitial nucleus of the anterior hypo-thalamus—that is larger in men than in women. Even sexual orientation and gender identity have been related to anatomi-cal variation in the hypothalamus.

Other researchers, Jiang. A person with Alzheimer’s disease may have side effects from medications that affect his or her sexual interest. He or she may also have memory loss, changes in the brain, or depression that affect his or her interest in sex.

Here are some tips for coping with changes in sexuality: Explore new ways of spending time together. Sexual abuse might impact his erotic interests, but this is not the same as orientation. Sexual orientation determines who a man is attracted to, whether it. An active sex life improves brain power in older adults.

but instead they seem linked to a dopamine controlled system of executive function and working memory. and whether there is a ‘cause and effect’ relationship between sexual activity and cognitive function in older people.

The effect of testosterone (T) on sexual function in men is well established. However, less is known about its effects on cognitive function. The aim of this study is to investigate the.

brief cognitive assessments are even more important for children, particularly in clinical cases (Ades, ). The assessment of working memory in children is a relatively new field. Similarly, there is an obvious lack of research involving the relationship between working memory and cognitive functioning in children.

Orientación sexual y memoria espacial. Memory & Cognition: What difference does gender make? Donna J. Bridge. Department of Psychology Syracuse University Abstract Small but significant gender differences, typically favoring women, have pre-viously been observed in experiments measuring human episodic memory performance.

In three studies measuring episodic memory, we compared.Sexual orientation is an enduring pattern of romantic or sexual attraction (or a combination of these) to persons of the opposite sex or gender, the same sex or gender, or to both sexes or more than one gender, or none of the aforementioned at all.

The ultimate causes and mechanisms of sexual orientation development in humans remain unclear and many theories are speculative and controversial.It is also distinct from—although it shapes—sexual orientation, or one’s emotional and sexual attraction to a particular sex or gender.

Sexuality may be experienced and expressed in a variety of ways, including thoughts, fantasies, desires, beliefs, attitudes, values, behaviors, practices, roles, and relationships.
