Great article about the differences found in transsexual brains from the Scientific American

Heya everybody,

Happy new year to everyone! Peace, freedom and happiness to the whole world!

I’m trawling through the roughly one thousand unread e-mails I have (😳), and I’m happy to say that I’ve managed about half so far (😥), which added six studies to my other references section. I’ll add short summaries later.

The magazine Scientific American has published a nice and short article summarising some of the latest findings about transgender brains. One of the studies mentioned is the 2014 study by Sarah M. Burke et al. showing the brain differences in reacting to odours, another one is the 2014 study, also by Burke, about the inner ear response to clicking noises. A great article to show to people new to the topic, as it’s brief, understandable, and lists study results from different, unexpected areas.

Take care, peace and light ✨
