    Two experiments explored factors related to gender differences in Ponzo illusion susceptibility. In Experiment 1, 54 male and 54 female (predominantly white, middle class) undergraduates were administered Witkin's Embedded Figures Test (EFT) and, on 2 separate occasions, a form of the Ponzo illusion. Results showed the Ponzo to be quite reliable over several days.   Extensive epidemiological evidence demonstrated inter-individual differences in the susceptibility to environmental exposures, with age, gender, and genetic polymorphisms significantly contributing to its negative health effects. A summary of the most frequently found pollutants and their health effects is summarized in Table 4.

    Women and men are different—and this fundamental observation extends to their susceptibility and response to different infectious diseases [].The reasons for this observation are manifold, including differences in exposure to common pathogens, genetic factors that modulate immune responses against pathogens, hormonal factors that may alter susceptibility or disease progression, and. In , scientists identified anatomic brain differences between transsexuals and nontranssexuals (Journal of Psychosomatic Research). More recently, Vilain and his colleagues determined that genetics may have a mild to moderate effect on transgender development (Biological Psychiatry, ).

    Environmental factors have a role in developing autism, but males are affected four times than females. What factors influenced gender susceptibility? The Influence Of Gender And Gender Identity In Society Words | 6 Pages. Gender identity is the personal conception of being a man or a woman and the society creates standards and comes up with gender roles basing them on existing norms and traditions which will in turn influence gender identity.

Whereas some of these distinctions are based solely on gender, there is growing awareness that the environment and related factors may play a role in creating health status differences between men and women.

Various factors, such as genetics and hormones, may account for gender differences in susceptibility to environmental factors. Research should examine gender differences in susceptibility to environmental factors over the entire lifespan as well as during critical exposure periods such as fetal development.

Presentations during the workshop demonstrated that both susceptibility and severity could vary over the lifespan. Gender Differences in Susceptibility to Environmental Factors: A Priority Assessment: Workshop Report.

[Valerie Setlow; C Elaine Lawson; Nancy Fugate Woods; Institute of Medicine (U.S.). Committee on Gender Differences in Susceptibility to Environmental Factors.;]. Gender differences in susceptibility to a disease is a very useful piece of information that can be used to develop a causal hypothesis for the disease, or to define subgroups at highest risk for preventive action (Zahm and Fraumeni, ).The gender differential in cancer incidence rates is comparable to ethnic and racial disparity in magnitude, and yet, most studies fail to look for it.

Men are more susceptible than women for certain diseases. Discuss. How men and women behave and play their roles in their own culture is dictated by the norms and values based in that particular society, and this gives rise to gender differences.
