Los transexuales operados apenas sienten el síndrome del miembro fantasma
Una encuesta llevada a cabo por científicos de la Universidad de California en San Diego ha revelado que el 60% de los hombres que han sufrido la extirpación del pene por enfermedad sufren el síndrome del miembro fantasma, frente a sólo el 30% de los transexuales sometidos a un proceso de reasignación de género. La posible explicación de estas reacciones tan diferentes podría estar en el cerebro, según los investigadores: consideran que la identidad de género que se forma en el cerebro del feto no siempre se corresponde con los caracteres sexuales del individuo, por lo que, si esta hipótesis resultara correcta, supondría que la transexualidad no es una “anormalidad”, sino una característica más de la evolución del cerebro humano.
