  • Brain scans of people who had just fallen deeply in love and who were shown a photograph of their significant other showed activity exclusively in brain structures below the cerebral cortex. Their reward circuitry was particularly active. This part of the brain focuses on obtaining a reward (in this case, for finding partner) in the form of a pleasurable sensation, which is transmitted by the chemical messenger dopamine (fi g. 16).

It’s also associated with addiction, which explains why people experience severe withdrawal symptoms when a love affair ends.
