The Science Behind The Chemistry: This Is What Actually Happens To Your Brain When You Fall In Love

When you fall in the love, everything changes: The days seem a little brighter, your smile looks a little wider and everything feels fresh, new and beautiful.

And, apparently, there are changes going on inside your brain, too.

Scientists from Southwest University in Chongqing, China found the first observable data linking falling in love to several chemical changes taking place in the brain.

Researchers tested 100 students — a third of whom were romantically involved, a third who had recently gone through a break-up and a third who had, sadly, never been in love.

They found experiencing the emotional rollercoaster that is going from “talking,” to “seeing each other” to being FBO significantly changes the circulation of blood flow in the brain.

When we are in love, 12 areas of the brain are more active and involved in blood flow. Does this mean we’re our best selves when we’re in love?

If it’s true the brain functions more harmoniously with a beau, being romantically involved could prove to be an incredibly important part in neuropsychological research.
