Abstract [en]

There are sex differences favoring men in visuospatial abilities and mathematical problem solving, whereas women outperform men on verbal production tasks, verbal episodic memory tasks, and face recognition. These differences are present in childhood, adolescence, and middle and old age, and the pattern is also seen in non-Western societies. Social and cultural factors affect the magnitude of these differences, but not the pattern. Prenatal levels of androgens affect play behavior, but have little influence on cognitive performance. For older adults, hormone treatment of estradiol and testosterone does not seem to affect cognitive sex differences or cognitive performance.
