The X Factor: Genetics and Female Mental Health

As I pointed out in a previous post, women are at greater risk of many mental illnesses than are men. And as I also quoted authorities on the subject remarking, the stock-in-trade cliché that  this is the result of societal or psychiatric “sexism” simply won’t wash. There are real, fundamental differences in the two sexes’ vulnerability to mental illness that appear to be at the biological level. Indeed, the previous post featured one possibility: the so-called “extreme female brain theory” of psychosis.
