Facial symmetry, masculinity and shoulder-to-hip ratios in men convey information to mates about reproductive/ genetic quality, the so-called "good genes" hypothesis. On the other hand waist-to-hip ratio conveys important reproductive information about women to men. Here using fMRI, men showed activation in neural reward centers when they viewed and rated the attractiveness of surgically optimally configured female bodies. © 2010 Landes Bioscience.
