How Hormones Impact on Emotion and Cognition – New Insights From Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Deptartment of Experimental Clinical and Health Psychology, Ghent University, Belgium


Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain in disorders of sexual development (DSD) is still relatively scarce despite the opportunities it offers for understanding the influence of sex hormones on emotion and cognition. In this talk I will give an update on current structural and functional MRI research in different DSDs such as Klinefelter syndrome, Turner syndrome, Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, or Familial Male Precocious Puberty. Finally, parallels will be drawn to current data sharing efforts in the MRI community and how such efforts may stimulate research and confidence in findings when sample sizes are small as in the DSD community.
