CUNY Research Finds Gender Differences in Visual Perception

Researchers at the City University of New York have found differences in visual perceptions between men and women. The study found that men had greater perception of rapidly moving stimuli while women were better able to distinguish color than men.

The authors of the study speculate the presence of testosterone in the visual cortex of the brain may be responsible for the differences. However, they state, “the evolutionary driving force between these differences is unclear.”
