The neurobiology of sex. Part 3: A happy ending is only the beginning
In the third and last part of this series on the Neurobiology of Sex, Susana Lima, principal investigator at Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown, tells us about her work on one of the quickest behavioural transitions in male nature: from passionate lover to snoring sack of potatoes – or, in biological terms, the male post-ejaculation behaviour.
