Embryology and Neurobiology of Transgender Phenomenon

Presentation Overview:

This is a comprehensive look at basics of cellular genetics and embryology. We will examine cellular process during fertilization and how biological gender is determined. We will then examine when normal processes that spontaneously undergoes modification and yield variations that yields intersex, transgender and non-binary gender of embryo during intra-uterine processes. We will switch gears and look at neurobiology of non-binary variations of central nervous system. Most recent research will be presented to “bust the myth” trans and other variations of gender as mental illness. The presenter will show most recent evidence to support that all form of gender variations are natural processes and it is not a pathological state. Attendees will learn basic vocabulary and concepts of cellular genetics, embryology and neurobiology.
