“Some gray and white matter regions of the brain are sexually dimorphic.”

The microstructure of white matter in male to female transsexuals before cross-sex hormonal treatment. A DTI study


“Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has been shown to be sensitive in detecting white matter differences between sexes. Before cross-sex hormone treatment female to male transsexuals (FtM) differ from females but not from males in several brain fibers.
