Men’s Spatial Abilities and the Hormone Testosterone

A new take on gender differences in spatial abilities is discussed by Carl Zimmer on the National Geographic website. http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/2012/12/28/of-men-navigation-and-zits/

He reports on a study by Edward Clint of the University of Illinois (published in the Quarterly Review of Biology) that explains that the male hormone testosterone may be responsible for  some men’s superior navigation skills when compared with women’s.
