Scientists have figured out which brain cells are responsible for sex and aggression

American scientists have discovered in mouse brain neural connection between the rear division of the amygdala and the hypothalamus, which is responsible in males for sexual desire and aggression. The study is published in the journal Nature Neuroscience.

Neurophysiologists have long known that the posterior amygdala, or the amygdala has a huge impact on social behavior, but its connection with sexual desire, until recently, was not known.
