NEURAL CIRCUITS OF SOCIO-SEXUAL BEAHAVIOURS
Sensory features of the world and the surrounding individuals must be constantly integrated by the central nervous system (CNS) to take appropriate actions. Imagine the first date you had with your love partner. The earliest visual cues will lead in split seconds to an internal reaction, such as the appreciation of their physical appearance. By welcoming each other, you may have hugged and spoken a word, all of which stimulated your sense of touch, hearing sense and your sense of smell thereby leading to a certain arousal state. However, the continuation of the date will depend a lot on your and your love partners behaviour and internal state. If he or she will need to get up early for work, they may not be willing to invite you over for a coffee.
