Regional gray matter variation in male-to-female transsexualism

Year Published: 2009

Published In: Neuroimage

Sample: 24 trans-women.

Conclusion: "MTF transsexuals show a significantly larger volume of regional gray matter in the right putamen compared to men. These findings provide new evidence that transsexualism is associated with distinct cerebral pattern, which supports the assumption that brain anatomy plays a role in gender identity."
