Benevolence is widespread in our societies. It is defined as considering a subordinate group nicely but condescendingly, that is, with charity. Deleterious consequences for the target have been reported in the literature. In this experiment, we used functional MRI (fMRI) to identify whether being the target of (sexist) benevolence induces changes in brain activity associated with a working memory task. Participants were confronted by benevolent, hostile, or neutral comments before and while performing a reading span test in an fMRI environment. fMRI data showed that brain regions associated previously with intrusive thought suppression (bilateral, dorsolateral,prefrontal, and anterior cingulate cortex) reacted specifically to benevolent sexism compared with hostile sexism and neutral conditions during the performance of the task. These findings indicate that, despite being subjectively positive, benevolence modifies task-related brain networks by recruiting supplementary areas likely to impede optimal cognitive performance.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is so common in elderly men that the development of adenomatous nodules in this organ can be seen as a normal age-dependent process. In this work, we used Northern blotting to compare the levels of androgen, estrogen, and insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) receptor in young (age range, 23-33; n = 3), old normal (age range, 52-80; n = 3), and BPH-affected subjects (age range, 66-87; n = 15). We have also investigated in these groups the expression of genes coding for the two 5 alpha-reductases (types I and II), aromatase, IGF-I, and IGF-II. Our results show significantly increased levels of IGF mRNA in old healthy and BPH-affected subjects; the respective rises for IGF-I, IGF-II, and IGF-I receptor mRNAs were 3.0-, 2.9-, and 1.5-fold (BPH) and 2.7-, 2.4-, and 1.8-fold (old normal controls). For estrogen receptor, androgen receptor, and type I and II 5 alpha-reductase mRNAs, a marked but opposite effect was observed in adenomatous tissues only; the respective levels were 2.2-, 1.8-, 3.9-, and 1.7-fold lower than those in young adult subjects, whereas no significant differences were recorded between the two normal groups. Morphometric analysis of each tissue specimen confirmed the significantly lower epithelium/stroma ratio in adenomas compared to young or old healthy tissues. Together, these observations suggest that prostatic adenomas may result from at least two conjugate processes: one characterized by a drop in the mRNA levels of steroid hormone receptors, which might be associated with a lower epithelium/stroma ratio, and another characterized by normal aging phenomena, of which the increased production of IGFs and IGF-I receptor transcripts could be biochemical markers.
