Sex in the Brain: How your brain controls your sex life

Amee Baird

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.
