Gender differences in language processing

About This Video

Gender differences in language processing are often exaggerated in popular magazines. Dr. Friederici’s lab has not found many gender specific effects in language processing. The only stable difference they found is related to the timing of emotional processing of language. Emotional prosody seems to be processed early by women but not by men.
