Explaining the notions of sexology through non-verbal, gestural communication brings to the audience an additional supply of information about human procreation.
The justification for this phenomenon is given by the existence of mirror neurons in the premotor brain cortex, in the additional motor area, in the primary somato-sensory cortex and in the lower parietal cortex (Mollenberghs P, Cunnington R July 2009 “Is the mirror neurons system involved in imitation?”) .
The communication of sexology notions by corroborating the verbal language with the gestural one may induce the state of excitability of the interlocutor by activating her/his mirror neurons, cerebral cells that, thus, play an important role in the determinism of sexual behavior, respectively in human procreation.
