Summary

Two researchers have found a long-sought bit of circuitry called the ejaculation generator in the spinal cord. On page 1566, neuroscientists describe a population of cells in male rats that they believe is critical for triggering ejaculation. The research could lead to better understanding and treatment of ejaculation disorders.
