Neuroimaging differences in spatial cognition between men and male-to-female transsexuals before and during hormone therapy.

Year Published: 2010

Published In: The Journal of Sexual Medicine

Sample: 11 trans-women.

Conclusion: "Our results confirmed previously reported deviances of brain activation patterns in transsexual men from men without GID and also corroborated these findings in a group of transsexual patients receiving cross-sex hormone therapy. The present study indicates that there are a priori differences between men and transsexual patients caused by different neurobiological processes or task-solving strategies and that these differences remain stable over the course of hormonal treatment."
