Challenge Team Abstract
We will be studying the effect of testosterone or estrogen levels in men or women, as a function of age. Testosterone is the male sex hormone and is produced in the male gonads, or testes. Testosterone regulates change to the male body during puberty, influences sexual behavior, and plays a role in growth. Estrogen is the female hormone and is secreted in the ovaries, regulates menstruation and stimulates lactation in humans and other mammals.
As changes in hormone levels occur with age, changes in the body and behavior also occur. We will find database on the internet, which gives us hormone levels as a function of age, and use these databases to build a model which predicts change in behavior as a function of age. We will build a mathematical data to plot the points.
