Sex differences in several areas of perception and cognition suggests that these processes could be among the functions modulated by sex and sex-related metabolic differences. This chapter concentrates on one particular perceptual and cognitive domain where sex differences have been reliably identified: visual-spatial abilities. This area of cognition has been the most extensively studied, both with respect to sex differences per se and with respect to the endocrine regulation of those differences. It can serve as a potential model for investigations in other cognitive domains.

Keywords:   visual-spatial abilities, cognition, perception
