Scott’s Presentation Affect on my Interaction with University Work

Scott’s presentation made me more aware of how much tracking and tracing actually goes on. With this tracking or tracing, advertisements implement our search history and key words to show and display advertisements that pertain to their audiences better. Tracking also allows bias towards internet links that may shift the neutrality of articles that show up via the search engine. Due to all of this, when doing university work I’ll make sure to utilize different internet browsers as well as not allow cookies etc.

Wilson, J. D. (1999, October 1). Role of Androgens in Male Gender Role Behavior. Retrieved from https://academic.oup.com/edrv/article/20/5/726/2530965

What: Describes the role of androgens (Testosterone etc) on MALE GENDER ROLE

Who: Endocrine Society

Why: This specifically talks about the role of androgens (male typical sex hormones) on sexual GENDER ROLE, which is also a main concept of my topic (how sex hormones affect gender role identification)

When: This source was written in 1999, while it may still be a bit older, this specific topic may still provide insightful and leading information towards my thesis statement.

Where: Oxford Academic Journal

How: I found this article through a search on google looking for professional journals on research regarding hormones and gender role development.

What: Describes the role of androgens (Testosterone etc) on sexual behaviors in men

Who: Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism Department

Why: This specifically talks about the developmental role of androgens (male typical sex hormones) on sexual BEHAVIOR which is the main concept of my topic (how sex hormones affect human behavior) – HOWEVER, it could be utilized as a counter-claim for certain arguments as it is a bit outdated.

When: This source was written in 1996, while it may still be credible, there have probably been more recent discoveries negating its claims.

Where: Cell Journal

How: I specifically searched for this article type through the Cell Journal because I’ve used this journal in the past for a previous Biology course.

What: Describes the role of androgens (Testosterone etc) on sexual development of humans.

Who: Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine Researcher and faculty

Why: This specifically talks about the developmental role of androgens (male typical sex hormones) on sexual development which is a big concept that plays into my topic of how sex hormones affect behavior.

When: yes, this source was written within the last decade of my argument, thus science on hormonal effects of this time still have relevance.

Where: NCBI professional journal from web

How: I specifically searched for this article type through the NCBI journal

 

Expert Questions

Topic: Sex Hormones and their effect on behavior

Expert: Hormones & Behavior Professor (Kathryn Lenz) with Neuroscience Department

Questions:

  1. What implications do sex hormones during early development have on gender identification later on in life?
  2. If male-typical sex hormones are given to female children during puberty, what would be the result on their bodies in a physical/physiological sense?
  3. Can female-typical hormones influence sexual behavior for men after puberty?
  4. What were some research methods utilized to discover sex differences between male and female brains?
  5. What hormone(s) are considered male-typical and what typical behaviors are they connected to?
  6. What hormone(s) are considered female-typical and what typical behaviors are they connected to?
  7. What are common misconceptions surrounding sex hormones and behaviors?
  8. How does Testosterone influence sexual behavior/sex drive?
  9. How does Estrogen influence sexual behavior/sex drive?
  10. If NO hormones are present or given within a developing fetus and throughout adulthood, what would be the effects on that developing fetus in terms of development and later on that fetus’ behavior as an adult?

Group 3 – Dejon Clark – Class 1 – Why Internships Should Not Be Required By Students at OSU

Group 3 – Class 1 – Dejon

Why internships should not be required by students:

  1. While having an internship increases competition in a field with finding a job after college, it would become more challenging in getting these jobs if everyone had one. (Internships give you the competitive edge, but if it’s required then the competitive advantage is gone!) 
  2. Many students may have other activities they do over the summer and it may not be possible for them. (Not all students have the schedule or available time to give)
  3. There are many companies that only offer few opportunities for students (Not enough legitimate jobs offered by companies) – Over employment of interns will also put pressure on current full time employees) 

Counter claim:

  1. “If you require an internship for OSU students, OSU graduates would look more superior in comparison to other universities.” → While this highlights university statistics, it doesn’t take into account the individual’s self interest and goals. For example, not everyone needs to complete an internship for pursuing their goals after undergrad.
