The Neuroscience of Pleasure and Love - Repeat!

Description

This is a repeat of the sold-out event on Saturday, February 4, 2017.

Is the brain chemistry behind our love for chocolate equivalent to that which drives infatuation with a new lover, the love of a particular song, or addiction? How does the brain sort out pleasure and discomfort? What drives our decisions to stay with one person for life or go from one lover to another, never settling down? At this Science on Tap, Dr. Larry Sherman, neuroscientist at OHSU, http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/research/research-expertise/researchers/index.cfm?personid=2340, will focus on these and other questions that reveal much about how neurochemical changes can have major effects on our behaviors—how we love, what we love, and who we love.
