  • The theory that transsexualism reflects a neurological intersex condition, in which one or more sexually dimorphic areas of the brain are inconsistent with somatic sex, is sometimes called the "brain-sex" theory of transsexualism. This theory rests largely on two reports from the Netherlands Institute for Brain Research, published in 1995 and 2000, that suggested a possible neuroanatomical marker for transsexualism in the brain.
