According to a new study, the male brain will seek out sex even if it has to forgo a good meal as some neurons override the need to eat.
The researchers found that specific neurons become active in the male brain and the person is ready to seek sex at the expense of food. On the other hand, women do not have the same neurons and thus food is the first priority for them. The researchers at the University College London (UCL) said that the study shows that the male and female brains are wired differently.
The scientists said that such neurons have been found in the brains of nematode worms but they believe that similar mechanism exists in humans as well.The worm species used in the study was Caenorhabditiselegans. Prof Scott Emmons, a co-author of the study from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, said that the study might shed more light on our understanding of human sexuality, sexual orientation and gender identification.
Prof Emmons said, “Although we have not looked in humans, it is plausible that the male human brain has types of neurons that the female brain doesn't, and vice versa. This may change how the two sexes perceive the world and their behavioural priorities.”
