The authors have declared that no competing interests exist. On the other hand, in order to show that the significant clusters are indeed markedly different from the background, we presented unthresholded F-statistical maps, as well . It gets so bad that some even hide behind the guise of science to justify the simple fact that they don't like transgenderism and it needs to be fixed and categorized into something I can understand and demonize of pity. Oh dear, the science has already become overwhelmed by demands for political correctness. Sexual Differentiation of Our Brains.
We adopted this strategy since, on one hand, presenting uncorrected results does not necessarily limit the validity of the findings in case of VBM, as shown by Ashburner and Friston who concluded that the validity of statistical tests based on uncorrected statistics was not severely compromised.
Male-to-female transsexuals have "male" brains
Arch Sex Behav I am autogynephiliac and think it is an awesome finding, the MRI proves this is innate. One MtF subject, who had never gone on hormones, was also included and matched up with the female neuron counts nonetheless. Additionally, our findings showed that in several brain areas, regarding their GM volume, transsexual subjects did not differ significantly from controls sharing their gender identity but were different from those sharing their biological gender areas in the left and right precentral gyri, the left postcentral gyrus, the left posterior cingulate, precuneus and calcarinus, the right cuneus, the right fusiform, lingual, middle and inferior occipital, and inferior temporal gyri.

Specifically, in a voxel sized cluster affecting the left pre- and postcentral gyri including the somatosensory cortex and the primer motor cortex ; a 32 voxel sized cluster affecting the left posterior cingulate, calcarine gyrus, and the precuneus, showed lower GM volume in MTF transgender patients and female controls compared to FTM transgender patients and male controls. Examination of at least the potential effects of hormones will be needed before any kind of conclusions can be drawn.
