KEY FINDINGS
  • This study shows that compared to healthy volunteers, compulsive sexual behavior subjects have enhanced attentional bias to explicit cues but not neutral cues particularly for early stimuli latency...this provides support for an incentive motivation theory of addiction underlying the aberrant response towards sexual cues in compulsive sexual behavior.
