Well, fucking duh…

Crazy for you – here’s the scan to prove it: “Many neuroscientists warn that brain imaging technology cannot read people’s minds and that something as complicated as love transcends simple computer graphics.”

Writing in The Journal of Neurophysiology, the scientists from New York and New Jersey said romance was closer in its neural profile to drives such as hunger, thirst or drug craving than to excitement or affection.

However, as a relationship deepens, the neural activity alters slightly, and in some cases primes those areas involved in long-term attachment.

The research helps explain why love can make someone feel euphoria one minute then anger and anxiety the next, or prompt out-of-character behaviour, such as compulsive phone calling, serenades and yelling from the roof.

It also helps explain why someone can contemplate stalking, murder or suicide when they are rejected by their lover.

See also: my previous thoughts (if not posts — too lazy to see if I wrote all this down online or off) on addiction to the new parts of relationships.

Although this does present me with two interesting thoughts. Yes, simultaneously. One in the left hemisphere, one in the right, if yo umust know…

one: I wonder if it might prove that people who carry out actions like suicide, stalking, etc., might be more prone to addictions like drinking, smoking, etc…

two: fuck. I went off in search of more information and forgot what thought two was. So create your own, think it, ponder it, dwell on it for a while.

Then read more here.

Share the joy
