In different areas of research in cognitive psychology, there are some differences in performance levels related to the sex of participants. These differences are often small, but they do exist. For example, women are better than men in tasks related to episodic memory, that is recalling and recognizing words and facts (Herlitz, Airaksinen, & Nordstroem, 1999; Herlitz, Nilsson, & Bäckman, 1997), but men are more proficient in space skills or visuospatial working memory (Halpern, 2000; Voyer, Voyer, & Bryden, 1995, Voyer, Voyer, & Saint-Aubin, 2017). Similarly, for time-related tasks, there appear to be differences in gender-related outcomes, but the understanding of them requires some methodological nuances.
