No her brain has a decreased preoptic of the hyptothalamus since age four yet no general difference in corpus callosum is present of observed. The same occurence is observed in howler monkeys with smaller hypothalamus area; they become hypersexual. Contrastingly, homosexual males have a larger hypothalamus. However, personal control over brain function dictates the measure of intelligence useless except for in standardized test but hypersexuality is only observed thus far in monkeys.
