Sex Stimulates the Brain Function, Say Scientists

///Sex Stimulates the Brain Function, Say Scientists

sex brain functionScientists from the U.S. and South Korea performed a series of experiments on rats and mice of middle age and came to interesting results.

Researchers at the University of Maryland found that sexual experience stimulates the development of new neurons in the hippocampus, which is responsible for the transition to long-term memory.

Several tests showed that after a series of sexual acts the process of neurogenesis in aging rats accelerated, and their brains actually became younger.

However, the suspension of the process of sexual activity slowed down the process of regenerating neurons and all the improvements in the higher brain functions came to naught.

At the same time, a group of scientists from the Konkuk University of the South Korea concluded that frequent sex successfully counteracts the negative effects of stress on the brain.

That stress is a major inhibitor of reproduction of neurons in the brain and sexual acts restore this function.

However, according to recent studies by psychologists at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany, pornography adversely affects the memory and the ability to multitasking.

The scientists tested the mental abilities of participants before and after showing them pornographic pictures and videos. Most of them showed deterioration of intellectual performance after viewing pornography.

    How much money was spent on this little gem? Let’s see…an activity that stimulates pretty much every system in the body also has effects on the brain..VOILA! Genius Lloyd…pure genius. I wonder how many people could have been fed or clothed with the money, time, effort spent on this. Way to go! Now someone else has their PhD and is over qualified for most jobs available.

    Wow, Heinrich! Looks like someone here hasn’t generated any new neurons in quite some time!

    Spleen aside, this is fascinating. The hippocampus seems involved in giving memories emotional value so we can instantly “feel” whether a particular memory has significance or not, and whether it has good or bad associations. This is basically how learning by experience occurs: Hand in fire? Bad memory! Sex:?Good memory! So not only the memory of sex will be tagged as good, but all the antecedent behaviors that led up to it will be remembered as good as well. And thus a pick-up line is born.

    As for porn interfering with intellectual performance: Does “intellectual performance” involve concentrating on something other than sex? If so, that might help explain these truly unbaffling results.
