Jill M. Goldstein takes a new approach on differences in men and women. Where some see these differences in sex as inequality, she sees these differences in an anatomical cause-effect manner. More specifically, Goldstein is interested in the psychological disorder Schizophrenia. She analyzes this disorder in a male versus female fashion, exploring how the disorder impacts both of the sexes and what morphological differences can account for variances in overall effects or predisposition for development (3). Goldstein has also worked on issues pertinent to women’s health like anorexia nervosa and hormonal changes that occur with stressful events (4, 5). This exemplifies her desire not only for understanding neurological sex differences, but also specifically aiding fellow women that struggle with disorders. Jill Goldstein is arguably approaching neuroscience in a more constructive form of subjectivity that will help with more specific understanding of disorders between sexes.
