Herbert H. Thomas Lecture: The Neurobiology of Sexuality: It’s Not Just About Testosterone
Needs Assessment and Description
Recent advances in the neurobiology of sexual behavior have revealed complex neuroanatomical, neuroendocrine and neurochemical systems that modulate responses to sexual stimulation. This information will help to clinicians test medications with potential sexual side-effects. This lecture will provide physicians, basic scientists and allied health professionals an overview of the physiological mechanisms that condition and regulate sexual behavior in animals and humans so they will be better equipped to target, model and eliminate sexual and reproductive dysfunction.
At the conclusion of this lecture, participants should be able to:
- Summarize the current state of knowledge of the control of sexual behavior.
- List potential targets for future research in the neurobiology of sexuality.
The presentation on the neurobiology of sexuality provided me with new and useful information that will improve my professional practice.
