A second line of evidence comes from studies on the structure of the brain. Earlier, examples were given of suggested sexual dimorphism in brain structure and organization in humans. There are reports that the 3rd interstitial nucleus of the anterior hypothalamus (INAH3), which is larger in men than in women, is of intermediate size in the brains of self-declaring homosexual men. However, the number of men in the studies is small and the overlap in the size values between gay men and non-gay men is too great to be significant in some studies.

Thus, overall the studies on AGS girls/women provide little support for either androgens or masculinized genitalia being an exclusive or necessary determinant of defeminization in humans. However, it is important to note that the AGS girls and women studied will, by definition, span the low to moderate part of the androgenization scale, where genital virilization is incomplete. How to summarize? It seems clear that there are some sex differences and even perhaps a gender difference in brain structure in humans, but these differences are small.
