Scientists from the Institute of neurology at new York University found that the relationship between sex and aggression exists only in the brain of males, reported in an article published by the researchers in the journal Nature Neuroscience, reports “life”.
“Approximately 90% of studies on aggression conducted today relative to males, but the females in this respect, little is known. It turned out that the cells that control sexual desire and aggression, located females from different sides of the hypothalamus. In males these cells are mixed and can perform the opposite function,” the researchers note.
The males of most mammals are more aggressive and sexually active compared to females. Scientists suggest this is due not only to different levels of sex hormones, but also with peculiarities of structure of the brain in the sexes.
Recall that scientists have calculated the most “useful” time of day for sex.
