Researchers at Oxford University say a brain implant will one day stimulate pleasure centers for people who have trouble enjoying sex and otherwise experiencing pleasure, according to a UK news report. The sex chipas it's been dubbed, would stimulate a part of the brain called the orbitofrontal cortex, targeting a joyless condition called anhedonia, according to the Daily Mail newspaper. A device along the same lines has been used already to treat Parkinson's disease, the researchers said, but a workable implant for stimulating orgasms is said to be a decade away because for now the surgery is too crude and intrusive.
News18 test sharma. London: Sex and lust will never be the same again, thanks to a wondrous 'sex chip,' which could produce a pleasure as intense and thrilling as a "delicious pastry. Scientists are designing a 'sex chip' that will be able to enrich sex vastly by tickling pleasure centres in the brain, according to reports.

Now researchers are focusing on the orbitofrontal cortex, which is associated with feelings of pleasure caused by eating and sex. The chip could stimulate the orbitofrontal cortex, which is associated with the pleasure felt when eating and having sex. It will be more subtle, with more control over the power so you may be able to turn the chip on and off when needed. An electronic machine that creates sexual feelings is already being developed in America by Dr Stuart Meloy.
The ability to trigger feelings of extreme pleasure on-demand is a prospect that's fascinated both scifi writers and scientists for decades. Indeed, the day is coming when we'll be able induce orgasmic-like sensations at the flick of a switch — a prospect with obvious appeal, but with some serious downsides. Back inneuroscientists Morten Kringelbach and Tipu Aziz announced that they were able to stimulate the pleasure centers of the brain by implanting a chip that sends tiny shocks to the orbitofrontal cortex.
But in recent months scientists have been focusing on the area of the brain just behind the eyes known as the orbitofrontal cortex - this is associated with feelings of pleasure derived from eating and sex. A research survey conducted by Morten Kringelbach, senior fellow at Oxford University's department of psychiatry, found the orbitofrontal cortex could be a "new stimulation target" to help people suffering from anhedonia, an inability to experience pleasure from such activities. His findings are reported in the Nature Reviews Neuroscience journal.
Scientists are developing an electronic 'sex chip' that works by stimulating the pleasure centres in the brain. The technology, which creates tiny shocks deep in the brain, has already been used in America to treat Parkinson's disease.

Would you implant a chip into your head to augment your sex drive? That's exactly what scientists are currently looking into: a device that sends tiny shocks to the part of your brain that is said to control the feelings of pleasure you get from both sex and eating. The neural stimulation is said to provoke physical stimulation, and according to Oxford Neurosurgery professor Tipu Aziz, such a device was successfully tried a few years ago, but removed when the subject complained about her constantly supercharged sex drive. He predicts future versions of the technology will let you turn the chip on and off when needed.
The special chip will send tiny shocks to the orbitofrontal cortex — the part of the brain associated with enjoying sex and eating. It will be more subtle, with more control over the power so you may be able to turn the chip on and off when needed. Man, Sex, Marie Claire news.
