BBC NEWS | Health | How the brain reacts to romance: Scientists say they have discovered what happens in the brain when someone falls in love. They studied chemical reactions in men and women who were all in the early stages of relationships. Research, published by the Society for Neuroscience, found activity in areas of the brain which are linked to energy and elation. But scans found women's brains showed emotional responses, while men's showed activity linked to sexual arousal.
Weird, that men and women would be so different in that. Or perhaps not.
Although it does, actually, give certain weight to some of the stereotypical differences between gay men and lesbians. (Which is as far down that path as I care to go, thanks kindly!)Posted by iain at November 12, 2003 12:26 AM
