Sex (hormones) and the brain
How Sex Changes Your Brain. Neuroscientist Dr. Herting will tell you how hormones prepare your brain to be a good lover. Moving beyond the famous psychosocial book “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus”, biology research has shown that men's and women's brains are different. Learn about the real ways in which hormones impact the brains of both sexes, including from the time of conception to the point of climax. Most importantly, find out what the sex life of rats can teach us about our own bedroom behaviors, as well as learn the difference between a sexy and celibate brain.
