The effects on sex and the sex drive are not generally considered when thinking through the consequences of traumatic brain injury, stroke, Parkinson's disease, or the early stages of dementia, but these brain conditions and many more can result in dramatic changes in the sex lives of those who suffer them. There has been surprisingly little research on how our brains control one of the most fundamental of all human behaviors: sex. And there is even less understanding of what happens to a person's sexuality after injury or illness affects their frontal and temporal lobes. In Sex in the Brain, Amee Baird explores memorable cases of brain injuries and disease that have effected significant changes in sexual behavior and reveals what these exceptional stories have to say about human sexuality. Each chapter includes striking personal accounts, many from individuals Baird has met in her clinical practice, of unexpected changes in sexuality. Until now these fascinating, frightening, and funny stories have been hidden in medical journals or untold outside of the clinical setting. This book offers unique insight into how the brain controls sex life.
