The microstructure of white matter in male to female transsexuals before cross-sex hormonal treatment. A DTI study

Year Published: 2011

Published In: Journal of Psychiatric Research

Sample: 18 trans-women and 19 male and 19 female heterosexual controls

Conclusion: "Our results show that the white matter microstructure pattern in untreated MtF trans- sexuals falls halfway between the pattern of male and female controls. The nature of these differences suggests that some fasciculi do not complete the masculinization process in MtF transsexuals during brain development."
