Ivanka Savic is a leading brain scan researcher. She is a  neuroscientist at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and Senior Physician in the Department of Women’s and Children’s Health. She is currently a visiting UCLA professor and has been studying the brains of transgender people. She found that two regions, the thalamus, and putamen, were smaller in transgender women than in cisgender women. Her studies also suggest that transgender men have a weakened connection between the two areas of the brain that process the perception of self and one’s own body. While her work has been published more than 100 times on various topics in peer-reviewed journals,  she still cannot conclude whether people are born transgender.
