Özet

Objectives. To investigate in a descriptive manner the P300 component of the event-related potential (ERP), which is related to aspects of cognitive processing, in patients with premature ejaculation (PE) to determine whether there is a cognitive alteration in this condition. Recent studies with short latency evoked potentials such as cortical somatosensory evoked potentials have indicated that afferent sensory inputs from the genital area to the nervous system are increased in PE, However, the cortical neural process of ejaculation has remained poorly understood.
