Are gender differences rooted in the brain?

Resources used to support "no"

Gender can be defined as the sex-role that a person takes on according to guidelines or standards instilled in us by society. One can be a male or female biologically, but still be perceived as the opposite sex due to the way one may think or present him self or herself. Whether or not we are born with certain biological traits different in male versus female is the nature versus nurture question that has been around for years. Through research we have found that men and women differ in the way they pro cess information, but whether or not this is due to the way that they are socialized or if in fact they are born this way has yet to be proven.
