Causal mechanisms FSIAD

Emotional Brain’s research program has revealed that, although women with the same diagnosis of Female Sexual Interest/Arousal Disorder (FSIAD) may share similar symptoms, these symptoms may be caused by a variety of factors. In some women with FSIAD, sexual dysfunction results from a relative insensitivity to sexual cues, whereas in others, sexual complaints result from dysfunctional automatic activation of sexual inhibitory mechanisms during sexual stimulation.
