At McGill University in Montreal, Canada, Sorge was investigating how animals develop an extreme sensitivity to touch. The males behaved as the scientific literature said they would: they yanked their paws back from even the finest of threads. Sorge and Mogil would never have made their discovery if they had followed the conventions of most pain researchers.
Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have discovered a mechanism for how androgens -- male sex steroids -- sculpt brain development. The research, conducted by Margaret M. McCarthy, Ph.
This chapter begins with a description of the male and female reproductive systems followed by a section on sex determination. A good knowledge of the anatomy of these systems has allowed the development of a unique technique for semen collection and insemination adapted specifically to geese see section on Artificial Insemination. This is slightly different from the technique used for most other avian species, e.

For example, a person might be born appearing to be female on the outside, but having mostly male-typical anatomy on the inside.

Or a person may be born with mosaic genetics, so that some of her cells have XX chromosomes and some of them have XY.
A leading blog on the science of sex, love, and relationships, written by social psychologist Dr. Justin Lehmiller. For female-to-male transsexual individuals, is it possible to construct a fully sexually-functional penis?
This list will be updated as often as possible to keep up with the rapid proliferation of queer and trans language.

It's thought the brother and sister who have identical genes from their mother but not their father developed from an egg fertilised by two different sperm at the same moment. In humans, it's the sperm that determines whether an embryo is pushed along a male or female development pathway.
