Hines, Melissa; Shipley, Carl
Developmental Psychology, v20 n1 p81-94 Jan 1984
Investigates the relationship between the perinatal hormonal environment and the development of cognitive sex differences. Compares 25 upper class women aged 14 to 24 who were exposed prenatally to diethylstilbestrol (DES) and their unexposed sisters. Subjects show a more masculine pattern of lateralization than their sisters but are similar in verbal and spatial ability. (Author/CB)
