Must read posts on gender differences in cognition

Two posts. Over at Pure Pedantry. By Jake Young. Via P.Z. Myers.

Both the posts summarize neatly several key 'overview type' papers on what is currently known about gender differences in cognition and cognitive abilities.

Verdict: Yeah, sure, people have found some differences; but they can't be responsible for gender imbalances in sciences and engineering.
