How did the mind evolve? How does the human mind differ from the minds of our ancestors, and from the minds of our nearest relatives, the apes? What are the universal features of the human mind, are why are they designed the way they are? If our minds are built by selfish genes, why are we so cooperative? Can the differences between male and female psychology be explained in evolutionary terms?
This chapter will begin with an overview of the reproductive systems, identifying the anatomy and physiology of the male and female systems. Some of the common diseases associated with this system will be addressed. The effect these diseases have on the individual and their partner will also be examined; this will enable the reader to explore both the physiological components of the disease process and the associated psychological aspects.
Another salient emotion in moving experiences is the feeling of inspi-
ration. The word “inspired” means, in its etymological sense, to be filled
with breath, spirit, and life. Thus, the emotion of learning at its most
powerful is the feeling of increased vitality as we realize our growing
capacity to perceive and act. This particular quality of experience is
addressed indirectly, at best, in mainstream psychological traditions. For

relation to the objectification, exclusion and silence of women in cinematic narratives. It also evaluated the
stereotyping of female characters in cinema.
Reproductive traits describe the animal’s ability to conceive, calve down and suckle the
calf to weaning successfully (Davis 1993). These traits are important since they affect the
herd size and off take. Reproductive performance is commonly evaluated by analysing
female reproductive traits. The traits regularly considered include age at first calving,
calving interval and calving rate. Male fertility traits are rarely included in genetic
evaluations despite their influence on the female reproductive performance.
A comparative study of HIV associated
pulmonary tuberculosis (HIV-PTB) was
carried out in Chest Clinics situated in Benin
and Irrua environs of Edo State, Nigeria,
using microscopical and serological
methods. In Irrua environs, HIV-PTB coinfection
is higher in females (12.5%) than in
males (9.2%) but not statistically significant
(P 0.05). In Benin, HIV-PTB is also higher
in females (11.3%) than in males (7.2%) but
not statistically significant (P 0.05). In
Benin, PTB is statistically high among 0.05)....
