What controls our sex lives? Our brains. Yet there is surprisingly little research into the ways our brains influence our sex drive. Research mainly takes place when something goes wrong through brain injury or disease, offering extraordinary insights into how the brain works. In... Sex in the Brain, clinical neuropsychologist Amee Baird takes readers on an entertaining and informative tour of the sexiest bits of the human brain. Spiced with real case studies, the book reveals pathologies no longer hidden in medical journals or the bedrooms of people whose sex lives are undergoing dramatic change, for better and worse. In the style of popular neurology guru Oliver Sacks, Baird captures the humanity and complexity of patients, even when their neurological challenges have rendered them permanently or temporarily unlikeable. Drawing from true stories, this revealing and sometimes heartbreaking book unfolds a better understanding of the links between brain function and our sexual selves.
