Professor Professor Melissa Hines is pleased to consider applications from prospective Ph D students. Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience Developmental Neuroscience I study gender development, and am particularly interested in how prenatal influences (e.g., gonadal hormones) interact with postnatal experience to shape brain development and behaviour.
My current research programme includes studies of individuals with disorders of sex development (formerly called intersex conditions), as well as healthy individuals for whom we have measures of prenatal hormones.
Each gets a phone call, each intrudes on the other's privacy. Do you remember "Before Sunrise", with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delphy?
If you do, the general premise of this movie goes more or less like this: It's "Before Sunrise", but instead of Vienna you get a motel room, and lots of steamy sex. Daniela (Lewin) and Bruno (Valenzuela) meet at a party, and end up in a motel. While I certainly can't complain about the sex scenes, the interesting part of the movie is what happens after (Or, uh, in between) them.
Sexual harassment is defined by the person being targeted.
The target of sexual harassment and the perpetrator (the one doing the harassing) do not have to agree about what is happening. Being the target of sexual harassment may make it scary to go to work/school or hard to concentrate.
Sexual assault is committed primarily out of anger and/or a need to feel powerful by controlling, dominating, or humiliating the victim.
But with no sign of trouble on their machines—no slow performance, no deleted files, no alerts from antivirus programs—they pretty much forgot about it. Suzy, Melissa, and Nila went about their lives online and off.Staff and volunteers use a confidential translation service to support survivors who speak other languages.Sexual assault is an act of sexual violence and aggression which occurs when a person is forced, threatened, or coerced into sexual contact without his/her consent.Her little sister, Suzy, was doing the same thing down the hall.The house was quiet, save the keyboard tapping in the girls' rooms, when the odd little instant message popped up on Melissa's screen—an IM from Suzy.
