This text explores a very popular and much-studied aspect of individual differences--sex differences--with particular emphasis on the way men and women think (human cognition). The book looks at perception, attention, memory, language and other cognitive domains, and how these differ between and within the two sexes.
Colin Hamilton is Senior Lecturer in Psychology, University of Northumbria at Newcastle, and an Open University Course Tutor.
