Structural Brain Differences for Transgender People

Structural Brain Differences for Transgender People:

A new study reveals that transgender people have variations in the size or volume of certain brain areas. Researchers at the University of São Paulo’s Medical School (FM-USP) in Brazil used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assess the brain composition of transgender individuals.

The investigators performed a structural analysis in search of differences in gray and white matter volume based on MRI scans of the brains of 80 individuals between 18 and 49 years of age and found biological differences.
