In this TED talk, anthropologist Helen Fisher discusses a study she was involved in which examined the brains and biochemistry of people in love. She points out the ways in which we have evolved in order to trigger love, lust, and attachment to a mate. She also examines the changes of women's roles in society and how she feels this will ultimately lead to the happiest marriages.


Description

Anthropologist Helen Fisher takes on a tricky topic -- love - and explains its evolution, its biochemical foundations and its social importance. She closes with a warning about the potential disaster inherent in antidepressant abuse.

How interesting!

I listened to this on a whim and found it time well spent. This is the best description of the inter-related workings of the chemical systems in the brain, regarding sex anyway. Her ideas/theories are thought provoking and well supported, and seem intuitively correct to my mind. Best of all, it really resonated with what's been going on in my head lately that I can't explain. I came away feeling that I'm normal after all, and that's certainly worth 25 minutes!!
