Love – A Mystical Science …

October 2, 2006 at 11:19 am 13 comments

To be madly in love could be exactly that – madness. The term ‘lovesick’ , is surprisingly accurate , according to a new study by the National Geographic. People experiencing romantic love , it turns out , have a chemical profile in their brains similar to that of people who suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder. Love thus seems to blur the line between mental health and psychopathology.

Still , we can’t resist the siren’s song , and science has an explanation for that too. Love , it seems , lights up certain areas of the brain that provoke hyperactivity , recklesness and exhileration. That’s why spellbound lovers stay up all night to watch the sun rise , take extraordinary risks to see each other , or as Britain’s King Edward VIII did , throw a whole country aside for “the woman I love”. In short , love can be dangerous.

A counterweight to the heavy sorrows of the world , love is a joyful part of life. Science can explain how love affects the brain – but not the mystery of how it affects the heart.
