My W showed me an article that's behind a pay wall about some research into brains in love. I don't think I can legally quote it, but I can share some of it because the research, led by a Helen Fisher, is public. The research is new to W & me; maybe it will be new and of interest to you.

Fisher found that lots of areas in the brain light up when a subject is shown photos of the beloved but not when shown photos of non-beloved people/places/things. What surprised her is that the Claudate nucleus (lizard brain) is one of them.

Below are 3 articles that describe the research and some of its implications.

Thank you, Sisoon. Brain imaging has shown so much about love and infidelity that can be informative.

Brain research is so interesting. Thanks Sisoon
