Associations among gender-linked toy preferences, spatial ability, and digit ratio: Evidence from eye-tracking analysis.
The finding could be a result of sex hormone exposure in the womb, scientists say. Yet the effect is moderated by digit ratios. You can see where this is going.

Seems Derek had neglected to take the tape from his video camera and the camera man hadn't bothered to fully rewind to tape over it. A 2008 study by Lu et al.
Using a unique paradigm that sub-divides visuo-spatial processing into a distinct subset of component skills we found a strong correlation between finger ratio and spatial memory performance specifically under stereo viewing conditions in women.

Penis size A 2011 study, published in the , suggested that men with shorter index fingers in relation to their ring fingers were more likely to have a larger penis. I have masculine fingers too. They would be called nikushokukei in Japan. Researchers looked at the ratios of these finger lengths in 1,500 prostate cancer patients and 3,000 healthy men over a period of 15 years.
My index and ring fingers both measure about 3. So how does this impact the rumor? Spatial ability and prenatal androgens: Meta-analyses of congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Stretched penis length is statistically correlated to the size of the penis when fully erect.
