"What a piece of work is man" - Shakespeare.

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how
infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and
admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like
a god! the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals—and yet,
to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me—
nor woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so.

My lord, there was no such stuff in my thoughts.

Hamlet Act 2 Scene 2

Unfortunately as with Hamlet some people become depressed despite man`s reason, faculties, movement and expression.

However here are two interesting fMRI scans of the heart and intercourse which shows even more details of the workings of man:

Could MRI scan help improve depression?
8 years ago Dr Rohan of Harvard Medical School noted improved mood in volunteers after MRI scans.
Last month Dr Rokni-Yazdi performed real and pretend (sham) MRI scans in 51 patients with major depressive disorder.
Treated group improved by 35-40%
Untreated group improved by 15-19%
This is the first such study of it`s kind.

That's so amazing. I wouldn't use an MRI as therapy for anything. There are some health risks according to some sources. Others claim it's as safe as the fish from the Gulf of Mexico and a vacation in Fukushima. I'd do some serious non-mainstream research if I were you.
