I work in Biology, Women's Studies, and Neuroscience. I am writing a new interdisciplinary neuroscience text suitable for non-major college juniors and seniors called 'Sex, Gender and the Brain'. This text will build off of a course that I have taught twice at Denison. This book will use animal and human case studies to explore issues of gender, sexuality, hormones, anatomy, biochemistry, behavior and environment to better understand the differences and similarities between male and female brains. The approval of this grant will enable me to complete the book proposal and to write two sample chapters.
