What causes a broken heart?

Long-term relationship

Brain and Sexuality

Dr. Amos Gdalyahu

Hi, I'm Amos and I have wanted to understand human behavior since my teenage years. This led me to do brain-research in top universities for over 20 years. 

Surprisingly, all these years I’ve not come across any neuro-sexuality course in spite of great public demand for it including my own curiosity. This explains why so frequently I hear misconceptions, over-simplifications, and pseudoscience around this subject. I have decided to fill this gap and to explain complicated issues of Neuro-Sexuality deeply, simply, and clearly. It is a unique course and a unique opportunity to gain fundamental life knowledge. 

I’m primarily a brain scientist and therefore my course is scientifically sound, accurate, as it is multidisciplinary and unique. I have been invited to multiple podcasts. My lecture opened the meetings of  The Israeli Society for Sexual Therapy and The Israeli Society for Fertility Research. 
I teach Neurobiology at Tel-Hai college, and
Bio-Sexuality at the prestigious program for sexual therapy in Sheba medical center, I also teach at The Faculty of Medicine Tel Aviv University, and at the course of The European Society for Sexual Medicine, ESSM.

How do I sound like?

Aya:"The course gave me a refreshing perspective on my relationships and my behavior in content and helped me to understand deeply what are the brain engines behind my desires, feelings, loves and passions and of those around me. 
In an accessible and clear way, the course allows a deep dive into fascinating and everyday topics that are not taught in any academic course." 085.jpg

What did participants say?

"It was fascinating and super important for life! It's fun that science can be sexy:) Thanks"

Lior: "I recommend the course to anyone who is curious   to discover another facet in the discourse on sexuality, to get an inside look at the influence of our brain on our sexual activities. The course offers a unique look at sexuality, in presenting processes that occur in our brain in the context of sexual activity.  Dr. Gdalyahu does it in a fascinating way and makes the world of neurology accessible.  Sex, happiness, relationships, pleasure and motivation, he goes over all the topics using examples from studies, analysis of processes that occur in the brain and questions that arose for the participants during the course.  
It is great even for those who are confident that they "know everything".  Dr. Gdalyahu created an
accessible course  at an academic levelOur perceptions towards sexuality begin in the brain, our functioning is affected by it.
Before you run to practice in a workshop or in bed, it is recommended to enrich your knowledge about our sexual activities through the "Bed, brain and Beyond" course. 

Guy: "The course made me curious about more such material and opened up a whole world for me.
It's worth signing up for the course because it's fun to know! It is amazing and important to me to understand how sexuality and relationship work.  Also, it is important and amazing to see how these topics have  been researched so far. 
And on that note, thank you very much Amos!
it was great! I was really interested and it opened up a whole world of curiosity for me to the world of neurology in general so thank you very much!"

Timor: "I could write an entire life story and describe how the knowledge I learned in the course with Dr. Amos Gdalyahu touched my life, but I will try to summarize in a few words;  The course gave me the knowledge to understand my passions, and my partner's ways of pleasure. 

Passion is a strong emotional experience that originates from the processes that occur in our mind.  Passion for all.. It was exciting to understand how it works. And the same goes for the processes that take place in our minds when we have fun. What enhances the pleasure and what blocks it. What happens during a sexual assault? I admit that this part shocked me and raised many questions and thoughts. Amos scientifically explains what we experience physically and emotionally which allows understanding ourselves and our partners and enhancing the experience of pleasure.  in two words: Meaningful and delightful!"

Tal: "I came to this course because of my professional interest in the field of sexuality, and I stayed because of so much knowledge that I felt was really relevant to things and processes that I myself go through. 
The course made me understand how complex the human being is, how many studies have already been done on things that have brought us amazing discoveries and how many more there are that we don't know.  
It was amazing to understand the connection between the different neurotransmitters and to understand that the environment has an effect on the physiological level, on our struggles and on traumas and on genetics.  
It helped me understand a lot of things about cognitive processes in my life and helped me to a deeper understanding of these processes that take place in my own brain. 
Amos brought broad and interesting knowledge, backed by research and made me ask many more questions.  Highly recommended.
