Sex Differences and Brain Development: A Bibliography.
Motomatsu, Nancy; Patterson, Bobbie
This bibliography cites references dealing with background material on the functions of the human brain and current research on sex differences in brain development. A list of 10 books published since 1974 is followed by a more extensive annotated bibliography of 29 articles, and a bibliography of 19 reports, complete with ERIC reference numbers and instructions for retrieving the documents. Sample forms and instructions for ordering ERIC documents are included. The articles explore such topics as sex differences in cognitive functioning, brain hemispheric differences, cultural differences in information processing, symmetry and perceptual comprehension of children, spatial ability, dyslexia, left- and right-handedness, creativity, and age differences. Many articles focus on research with children and the implications of such research results for educators. (NRB)
