Title: “Biological Sex” as a Misnomer

Kirsten is a cognitive neuroscientist with an interest in gender and the ways in which our brains experience our bodies.

Her talk will discuss how our chromosomes influence the development of the nervous system before birth and will explore how exposure to hormones before and after birth can affect the reproductive system and the brain. She will explore the idea that the commonly used term “biological sex” does not accurately capture the complexity of sex determination and expression seen within humans, and the fact that the traditional binary view of male/female does not fully encapsulate the diverse ways in which “biological sex” can manifest.
