Brain Sex: Brain Architecture and the Sexes.

Dist.: Films Media Group. 1992. 51 min. each installment. Sugar and Spice. Even during the first moments of life, baby girls and boys already behave differently. Combining case histories and scientific analysis this program argues that the mixture of hormones in the womb "hardwires" the brain with a sex-aligned signature before birth, causing it to become distinctly female or male--or a mixture of both. Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better. Statistically speaking, why have men and women not proved equally adept at the same things? In this program, researchers debate whether differences in brain architecture lead to a division of talents and aptitudes between the sexes--and draw some startling conclusions. To illustrate these differences, children are observed in classrooms, on the playground, and at home. Love, Love Me, Do. How might acknowledging the brain's role in sex differentiation make interpersonal relationships run more smoothly? Using images from popular art, television drama, and hidden-camera footage to illustrate both predictable and unexpected conflicts, this program presents the way sex-related differences in brain architecture may influence love, marriage, reproduction and parenthood.
