The Guardian reports on work carried out at Rutgers University in New Jersey, that saw a team of scientists successfully map brain activity during orgasm by having a woman masturbate in an MRI machine. I bet not many people can say they’ve done that.
Researchers monitored a woman’s brain as she lay in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner and stimulated herself. The research will help scientists to understand how the brain conducts the symphony of activity that leads to sexual climax in a woman.
By studying people who have orgasms, Professor Barry Komisaruk, a psychologist at Rutgers University in New Jersey and his team hope to uncover what goes wrong in both men and women who cannot reach sexual climax.
