Research suggests males typically outperform females on measures of spatial cognition, including the Perceptual Abilities Test (PAT; subtest of the Dental Admissions Test (DAT)). Numerous factors appear to be related to the sex difference in spatial cognition, including task and stimulus type, and prenatal and circulating testosterone (T) levels. We further examined the influence of these factors by testing participants on two sample tasks from the PAT and two comparable novel tasks, and measured 2D:4D (prenatal T index) and salivary T. Results of this study may guide future research examining mechanisms underlying the commonly reported sex difference in spatial performance.
