Why Men Are Better Navigators Than Women: Adaptation or Testosterone Side Effect?
Neuroscientist Justin Rhodes explodes the myth behind why males are better at navigation than females. Most people, including many evolutionary biologists, believe that men are slightly better navigators than women because of the division of labor in early human Hunter-Gatherer societies. The story goes that those with superior navigation skills were more likely to return home to pass on their genes and evolution took care of the rest. But Rhodes and his team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a way to put this long-held theory to the test. Rhodes is an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience Program, Institute for Genomic Biology and a full-time faculty member of the Beckman Institute's NeuroTech Group.
