    Devries summarizes sex‐based differences in fuel utilization during endurance exercise. Evidence for differences in each of carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism are presented. The mediating effects of oestrogen are discussed with specific reference to a number of experimental approaches, which point to a modulating effect. that normally produce sex differences in spatial ability. While practice may play some role in the ontogeny of spatial skills, it now seems unlikely that mere dif- ferential experience can account for the sex difference in spatial performance in either humans or rodents (Baenninger and Newcombe, ; Gaulin and Wartell, ).

      Mars-Venus sex differences appear to be as mythical as the Man in the Moon. A analysis of 46 meta-analyses that were conducted during the last two decades of the 20th century underscores that men and women are basically alike in terms of . As expected, there were sex differences prior to the training. But afterwards, the sex differences were reduced, Feng et al. () thus suggest that appropriate training can boost spatial attention capacities, especially in women, which will allow greater performance in mathematics and engineering and encourage more women to pursue such careers.

    Finally, the malleability of mental rotation performance has been demonstrated in studies relating everyday spatial activities and spatial abilities: Newcombe, Bandura, and Taylor () found a substantial positive relationship between the Spatial Relations test of the Differential Aptitude Test (DAT) and the frequency with which a multitude. However, males outperformed females even when the effects of the performance factors were partialed out; that is, the assessed performance factors did not explain much of the sex-related variance. Alternative ways of measuring performance factors will be needed if they are to explain sex differences in dynamic spatial ability.

Effects of practice and training on sex differences in performance on a spatial test by P. G. Tobin Download PDF EPUB FB2

Results showed no effects for sex on any of the four posttests, suggesting that males and females benefitted equally and significantly from the training.

A comparison of female experimental subjects and male control subjects indicated that training closed the spatial experience gap between the sexes Author: Anne Stericker, Shirley LeVesconte.

A sex × group ANOVA showed that the retention performance in the spatial navigation task was not significantly affected by stress (main effect group for the time needed and the errors: all F >; all p >; all η 2 performance of men and women differently (interaction effect sex × group for both Cited by: Training in Spatial Visualization: The Effects of Training Method and Gender.

The role of expe rience in spatial test performance The second objective was to evaluate the average sex. In the present study, the relationships between academic interests, sex roles, and performance on Piaget's water-level task were investigated.

College students (N = ) completed a paper-and-pencil water-level task, the Self Directed Search (SDS; a career interest inventory), and the Bem Sex Role by: They found interactive effects of sex hormones and stereotypes on spatial performance in the sense that testosterone mediated the effects of gender stereotypes in spatial abilities.

In the present study, we address whether sex differences in mental rotation and spatial navigation are mediated via masculinity, femininity or sex : Belinda Pletzer, Julia Steinbeisser, Lara van Laak, TiAnni Harris. A total of participants (41 males, 60 females) completed the SOT, along with other spatial tests and spatial affect scales (tapping spatial anxiety and confidence).

Results showed a significant male advantage on this rediscovered map reading test. Additionally, timing affected overall performance but not the magnitude of sex differences.

Sex differences in spatial cognition have been reported for many species ranging from voles to humans. The range size hypothesis predicts that sex differences in spatial ability will only occur in species in which the mating system selects for differential range size.

Consistent with this prediction, we observed sex differences in spatial ability in giant pandas, a promiscuous species in which. The purpose of the present study was to test the hypothesis that environmental factors affect the magnitude of gender differences in spatial performance only when the tasks used are susceptible to the influence of such factors.

Two hundred and ninety White middle-class undergraduate students ( females, males) completed the Vandenberg and Kuse Mental Rotations Test (MRT), a paper and. Another predictor of spatial ability in general and wayfinding in particular is linked to sex differences in the performance of young adults (Linn and Petersen, ; Voyer et al., ).

In fact, many studies have found that men learn spatial environments faster and make fewer errors than do women. The purpose of these two studies was to examine sex differences in strategy use and the effect of prior exposure on the performance on Vandenberg and Kuse's Mental Rotation Test. In this study, we investigated the effect of dynamically manipulating the FOV as a function of linear and angular speed on sex differences with respect to VR sickness and spatial navigation performance using consumer VR HMDs.

The results showed that FOV restriction is effective in mitigating VR sickness symptoms in both sexes. Four factors have been reported in the literature as being related to spatial test performance.

This study investigated the main and interaction effects of sex, handedness, birth order, and experience on three different types of spatial performance; surface development, object rotation, and coordination of viewpoints.

A total of undergraduate students served as subjects, and were. There are substantial individual differences in susceptibility to motion sickness, yet little is known about what mediates these differences. Spatial ability and sex have been suggested as possible factors in this relationship. 89 participants (57 women) were administered a Motion Sickness Questionnaire that assesses motion sickness susceptibility, a Water-level Task that gauges sensitivity to.

spatial performance. The sample comprised 1, university graduates ( females and males). Results show that males outperform females in both tests.

However, sex differences in verbal reasoning turn to be nonsignificant when sex differences in dynamic spatial performance are statistically removed.

The finding. Sex differences in spatial ability among adults in Western cultures are widely acknowledged, but few studies have assessed visual-spatial ability in non-Western subjects with tests that show the largest sex differences, and little is known whether effect sizes for different spatial.

Gender effects on cognitive abilities have been largely investigated in the past. In particular, differences in visuo-spatial abilities have been reported and confirmed by experimental evidence (see Halpern, ; Maccoby & Jacklin, ; Richardson, ) and meta-analytic studies (Linn & Petersen, ; Voyer, Voyer, & Bryden, ).Several hypotheses have been put forward to explain these.

Sex differences in spatial cognition: advancing the conversation Susan C. Levine,* Alana Foley, Stella Lourenco, Stacy Ehrlich and Kristin Ratliff The existence of a sex difference in spatial thinking, notably on tasks involving mental rotation, has been a topic of considerable research and debate.

We review. The Evolution of Sex Differences in Spatial Ability Catherine M. Jones, Victoria A. Braithwaite, and Susan D. Healy University of Edinburgh It is widely believed that male mammals have better spatial ability than females.

A large number of evolutionary hypotheses have been proposed to explain these differences, but few species have been tested.

In order to see whether working memory is an important factor in these differences, 50 males and 50 females performed tests of three-dimensional mental rotation and spatial visualization, along with tests of spatial and verbal working memory.

Substantial differences were found on all spatial ability and spatial.
