Ejaculation is controlled by the lower part of the spinal cord, logically for some time. Now some scientists have identified the neurons involved in this process. These neurons are lumbar-spinothalamic.

During an experiment, scientists removed these cells to male laboratory rats and joined them with females. The males could not ejaculate and it became clear that these neurons regulate ejaculation. This has made scientists wonder what role do these neurons play in females?
