Summary
"This volume is a collection of comprehensive reviews by prominent scientists on recent, cutting edge advances in our understanding of the role of biology in human sexuality. For example, pioneering research on structural differences in the brain validates transgender people's feeling of being a member of the other sex. Fascinating illustrations show images of brain activity during sexual response of women with spinal cord injury. Research uncovers potential genetic influences on the development of sexual orientation. The book reveals the mechanisms behind the inhibitory effect of common antidepressant medications on sexual functioning, along with the crucial role that these medications can play in the treatment of compulsive sexual behavior. This book answers many of the questions that today's students and patients, as well as the media and the general public, frequently ask about the biology of gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual response, and sexual behavior"--Cover.
