RAEL’S COMMENT: Absolutely true if you “fall” in love, that means if you follow your hormones… but if your love is based on supra consciousness and not hormones: not at all. That means loving somebody for his/her personality and not the shape of his/her body, the color of his/her eyes or the way he/she dances…. So do not “fall” in love but raise in love!
Falling in love affects intellectual areas of the brain and triggers the same sensation of euphoria experienced by people when they take cocaine, researchers from Syracuse University reveal in an article in Journal of Sexual Medicine. The study, called “The Neuroimaging of Love” found that several euphoria-inducing chemicals, such as vasopression, adrenaline, oxytocin and dopamine are released in 12 areas of the brain that work simultaneously.
The authors also reveal that falling in love can occur in a fifth of a second.
So, is love linked to the brain or the heart?
Professor Stephanie Ortigue said:
That’s a tricky question always. I would say the brain, but the heart is also related because the complex concept of love is formed by both bottom-up and top-down processes from the brain to the heart and vice versa. For instance, activation in some parts of the brain can generate stimulations to the heart, butterflies in the stomach. Some symptoms we sometimes feel as a manifestation of the heart may sometimes be coming from the brain.
