Love in the Brain 

This is a really cool study. Researchers used fMRI to examine the brain activation of newly in-love couples, and found that love seems to have more to do with motivation and reward than with sex*. There's a lot of very interesting and cool stuff in there about the brain and emotion and autism (hey baby, you're so sexy you make me feel not autistic!), but I have no time, so this is just one for the memory banks.


* They do not, however, make clear what about sex fails to be motivation and reward.
