The scientists found out that after sex the number of neurons in the hippocampus extremely increases. The hippocampus is a part of the brain that is involved in the process of transition short-term memory into the long-term one. Despite the fact that all the studies were carried out on rodents, scientists believe that the brain activity of mice has a huge resemblance to the human one.

As a result, a half-hour of sexual activity led to the increasing of the level of neurons and restored general brain function of all middle-aged rodents. That’s impressive.

Also there is information that is worth your attention. After long-time sexual abstinence the brain activity of mice rapidly ‘falls down’ and becomes ordinary. That’s why if you want your brain working fully and have a good memory, you should simply have a regular sex life.

In addition, blood flows activate the brain cells and allow the vessels to be filled with plenty of oxygen. These factors also stimulate the human cerebral gray matter and therefore improve the activity of various parts of the human brain.

Earlier scientists from London conducted an experiment (how sex affects the mind) with the participation of 7000 volunteers. The results showed that the aging of human brain cells begins at the age of 45. At this age the first signs of decreasing brain activity appear.

However, if sex can make people smarter and cleverer, it can hardly be argued the opposite. If you want to be clever and quick-witted, it does not mean that you should look for more sexual activity. More intellectual teenagers, and it is a fact, tend to delay their first sexual experience and activity. Scientists from the University of Pennsylvania in 2012 found that high capacity and efficient use of memory is likely to decrease significantly in the case of early sexual experience of teenagers.

Some researchers say the delay of more than common ability to assimilate happens because of the ‘young’ sexual life of teenagers. It is also interesting, one study in 2010 showed that the two groups of teenagers with the more than average intelligence and below average intelligence didn’t have early sexual experiences. More recent research with the 536 same-sex twins had demonstrated, that intelligence is not connected with the success in school, the IQ level, and the age of first sexual experience.

So having sex may be a pleasure but not an important activity for your brain. Sex is a good exercise to stay healthy. But you shouldn’t think that sex is some kind of a magic wand that can treat all your diseases and make you extremely clever.

Sexual activity improves brain function. This conclusion was made by scientists from the U.S. and South Korea.

During the experiment on rodents psychologists from the University of Maryland demonstrated that sexual experience in the hippocampus increases the number of newly generated neurons. This area of the brain responsible for memory consolidation that is associated with improved cognitive functions. In addition, regular sex helped the rodents recover cognitive function. However, a positive effect is lost after the cessation of active sexual life.

South Korean scientists during experiments with mice found that sex reduces negative consequences of stress for the brain.
