Your Brain on Love

Love is a construct that has been the subject of (and muse for) many artistic, poetic, and philosophical gestures since humanity existed, almost like a preoccupation. Yet, what is it about love that elicits such a universal outpouring of sentiment?

What IS this love that permeates our heart, minds, and souls - our dreams, our fantasies, our imaginations? Many psychologists and even neuroscientists have posited many different models of what love is - and isn’t - which often include our neurochemistry.

As a psychologist in clinical practice, many of my clients struggle with all different kinds of questions for Cupid, but most focus on how to build healthy romantic relationships. A relationship that is a coming together to express and engage in a love that is shared.

Love, as we know, is mostly intangible, but a relationship is a tangible reflection of the love experienced by two people. If we understand our relationships, we are equipped to notice the nature of our love, and to ascertain whether or not it is serving us. Some relationships are healthy. Others are toxic.
