Neural Sex Differences, Hormones & Autism

Why is studying sex differences in brain and behaviour important for mental health? I hope to answer this question by guiding you through typical sex differences in brain development, possible mechanisms behind the development of sex differences in the brain and how these findings may impact the way we approach studying mental health conditions. The latter part of the talk will focus on how this links in with autism spectrum research.
