Valentine’s Day may be long passed, but there’s always time to learn a little about what makes us all fall in love. This video from the folks at Life Noggin explains in beautiful detail, including the chemical processes that happen in our brains to the science of attraction and social interaction.
The video covers a lot of ground, starting off with the neurochemical changes that we perceive as love and attraction to the role that our senses play in determining who we’re attracted to and how. You may think it’s just a matter of whether that lovely gent or lady over there that you’re interested in is attractive or not, but there are more than a few evolutionary processes at play that are already feverishly at work, all determining things like genetic compatibility and social relatability — you might be surprised there’s so much going on behind the scenes when all you can feel are the butterflies in your stomach. Hit play on the video above to learn more.
