Memory and perception are valuable possessions of mankind. But these possessions are influenced by various physical, emotional and environmental factors. So, the present study planned to investigate the influence of gender on memory and perceptual ability. Results revealed that short term memory showed statistically significant increase in females compared to males. Perceptual ability showed an insignificant increase in males compared to females. Thus it could be concluded that women performed well in verbal episodic memory tasks and men excelled in visuo-spatial processing.
