Brain, Sex and Gender

Prof. Daphna Joel, Faculty of Social Sciences, School of Psychological Sciences

Our guest Prof. Daphna Joel conceived the ‘mosaic’ hypothesis – the claim that sex differences in the brain do not add-up consistently in individuals. In a discussion with out host, Ido Aharoni Aronoff, she contends that most brains are composed of both features more common in females and features more common in males.

Prof. Joel received her Ph.D. in psychology in Tel-Aviv University in 1998, and joined the faculty of TAU, after receiving the Alon fellowship for young Israeli scientists. She is presently a member of the School of Psychological Sciences and the Sagol School of Neuroscience. Her work on questions related to brain, sex and gender won international acclaim.
