Love isn’t just something that’s churned out of a Hallmark greeting card factory or delivered fresh from your local florist. It’s something that involves one of the most important organs of the human body — your brain.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, AsapSCIENCE breaks down the science of being in love. In this well-crafted stop-motion animation lecture, AsapSCIENCE discuss how a brain in love shares similar qualities to a brain on cocaine and how the chemicals dopamine and norepinephrine bring out the motivation, desire and craving to be with your significant other. It’s not just peer pressure and those engagement ring ads that tell you to be with the one you love, it’s the chemicals and the body functions that make you take action.
