Year Published: 1995

Published In: Nature

Sample: Data from 6 trans-women, collected over 11 years. 42 Control brains were also analysed.

Conclusion: "Our study is the first to show a female brain structure in genetically male transsexuals and supports the hypothesis that gender identity develops as a result of an interaction between the developing brain and sex hormones."
