What happens to our body when we fall in love?
In the newly-emerging science of brain chemistry, researchers are beginning to identify the biochemical processes behind such mysterious emotions as attraction, passion, and love.
What do you know is brain does more than think and reason; it feels. All passions and drives are from the brain. Sentiment does not come from the heart.
It all happens when love neurons are firing in your brain, simultaneously releasing a series of body chemicals. The brain cell signals, some inhibatory, some exhitatory, can dictate your choice of a mate, can determine why you will be attracted to certain people and repelled by others. Experts in the chemistry of emotions are attempting to answer why that warm, glowing feeling for someone can win out over your reason.
Love pleasures are great, but the torment and the pain of losing ones love object is the worst kind of withdrawal, which certainly seem to suggest the chemically addictive aspect of love.
So why do we keep looking to fall in love? Because love puts springs in your gait and color in your cheeks. Because love makes you more attractive. Because loves gives you energy, keeps your juices flowing.
Yes, all that but mostly because you are a bonding species, says noted sex therapist Dr. Helen Kaplan.
"like the birds, were happier in pairs," says Dr. Kaplan. "we function better, In fact people are healthier, get fewer diseases, take stress better and live longer if they engaged in an intimate relationship",
And oddly enough both love and hate are 'manufactured' by the same brain chemicals. Does it mean we can order the one or the other?Attraction is just as individualized, thank goodness, or we would all want the same individual! the person who rings bells for you may hit a sour note for someone else.
We have been programed by our past, by every sight, smell, and sound, every touch and every tone of voice. Love at first sight (or smell, particular behavior, etc) taps into are computerised system of life experiences, recorded from birth. Everything comes into are brain, sights and smells, tates and sounds, a kiss or a slap. All are stimulating clues, to which we respond individually.
Odors known as pheromones are so powerful that insects
they can attract males to their deaths. In humans the whole concept
of pheromones is a more muted one. We are trained from babyhood
natural body odors are awful. We have the whole industry devoted to ways
of making you smell less badly or smell better. The fact that some people
smell badly to us from a few metres away means that other clues have
happend by the time we get close. Were only aware of them subliminary.
We do know that when you fall in love or are sexually aroused (or angry, of fearful, or depressed), chemical changes takes place in your brain and affect your body, your behavior, your feelings.
You can be crazy in love. Love can make you irrational, foolish and blind!
Theres no questions that the over-idealisation of the love object leads to all kinds of errors in judgement. The limbic system is a high powered salesman. Hes selling the cortex a bill of goods. Its happening subliminally, and it takes only minutes.
That animal brain salesman says: "You've found
he's just what you want" And the cortex says: "Yes but
he maybe a drinker, and i've already caught him in a lie, and
his changing careers right now, (not working)..."But your
brain says: I can live with it" That means the cortex like
what it saw in the first place and the limbic salesman did a
good jobThe Chemistry of Love - Excerpts
