Sweden’s Karolinska Institute researchers carried out the study by doing brain scans of 90 volunteers.

Researchers found that their brains responded to emotion, mood, anxiety, etc. in very similar manners, and also had the same build.

Also, researchers found that the brains of gay women were similar to that of straight men.

The new study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that gay men and straight women share brains of the same type, as do gay women and straight men.

More research is needed to see if the type of brain has anything to do with sexual orientation.
