Have you ever thought about orgasms and why they feel so good? Chances are that you don’t really think about why they feel good, just that they do feel good but Neuroscienteists explain how sexual stimulation can reroute the brain activity. When the brain activity is rerouted it helps reach an altered state of consciousness, strangely enough this is similar to a seizure.
- That is the crux of a new study that breaks down what happens to our bodies when we reach the height of sexual stimulation.
- Despite centuries of research, scientists remain somewhat ignorant about the underlying mechanisms of a climax.
- But now neuroscientist Adam Safron, of Northwestern University, has mapped out how rhythmic stimulation alters brain activity.
