White matter microstructure in female to male transsexuals before cross-sex hormonal treatment. A diffusion tensor imaging study

Year Published: 2011

Published In: Journal of psychiatric research

Sample: 18 trans-men and 24 male and 19 female controls

Conclusion: "Our results show that the white matter microstructure pattern in untreated FtM transsexuals is closer to the pattern of subjects who share their gender identity (males) than those who share their biological sex (females). Our results provide evidence for an inherent difference in the brain structure of FtM transsexuals."
