Intimate gaze: Hormones and sex differences in response to sexual images

Prof. Kim Wallen

Men and women exhibit differential neural activation to photographs of human sexual activity with males showing increased amygdale activation (Hamman, et al., 2004). We don’t know whether men and women look at the same aspects of the sexual stimuli. We investigated sexual stimuli viewing patterns in men and women using eye-tracking, and whether women’s interest in sexual stimuli varied with her hormonal condition (Rupp and Wallen, 2007).
