ABSTRACT: This paper analyses the extent to which the growing research on neuroplasticity in the 20th century related to neuroscientific investigations into sex differences. In the late 19th century, William James formulated the notion of a malleable brain that is responsive to exterior influences. At the same time, however, the influential work of Santiago Ramón y Cajal led to an adoption of the view of a static adult brain.
