Woman's Brain During Orgasm
Three-dimensional visualization reconstructed from scanned human data of a woman's brain during orgasm. A functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) scan shows that activity is present in different areas of this woman's brain during orgasm, not just the small regions that were previously known to be involved. While the genital sensory regions of the brain in the thalamus and cortex are not activated, the orgasm-related brain regions are. These areas are normally activated by genital stimulation, but in some individuals they can be stimulated by thought alone.
