Dr. Halpern, who is a McElwee Family Professor of Psychology at Claremont McKenna College, and a 2013 James McKeen Cattell Award Recipient for her lifetime contributions to applied psychological research, spoke about her research on: SEX, GENDER, AND COGNITION: HOW THE DATA ARE BEING MISUSED TO SUPPORT THE PSEUDOSCIENCE ON SINGLE-SEX SCHOOLING

One of the most controversial topics in psychology is how, how much, and why females and males differ in some cognitive abilities. The topic is probably as old as humankind and as new as this morning's news. Yet, it continues to fascinate and confound us. The "truth" about cognitive sex differences is complicated, and although there are many similarities in the cognitive abilities of males and females, there are also differences that are very large, and have been replicated across time, cultures, and species. How can we make sense of the large and often contradictory data about cognitive sex differences, and even more importantly, how can we use these data appropriately and guard against their misuse in formulating public policies, including the pseudoscience behind single-sex schooling?
