(58)There are also gender-linked differences in abilities and in physical and psychological traits that are not discussed here in length (see Chapter 16 of this volume). The most obvious biological differences are that gestation, lactation, and menstruation occur in females only, and sperm production in the male only. Numerous research studies have also found that males, as a group, tend to score higher in measures of physical strength and fleetness (related to sex differences in muscles), certain mathematical skills, visual-spatial skills, and gross-muscle movements. On the other hand, females tend to score higher, as a group, in measures of certain verbal skills, resistance to certain illnesses and disease, tactile sensitivity, and fine-muscle movements involved in manual dexterity. In psychological traits, boys as a group are more aggressive, on average, than girls, and boys are more active in boisterous play than girls. On the other hand, girls score higher, as a group, on measures of nurturance, sociability, and empathy. The research studies demonstrating these sex differences are reviewed by several recent reports, including J. H. Block, Sex-role Identity and Ego Development (San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 1984); J. Brooks-Gunn and A. C. Petersen, eds., Girls at Puberty: Biological and Psychosocial Perspectives (New York: Plenum Press, 1983); D. B.
