The neurobiology of Love

Dr. Andreas Bartels

Love is a highly rewarding experience – it bonds adult partners, parent and child. The biological mechanism mediating it is of existential importance for some species. My lecture will review – from a biological perspective – evolutionary, physiological and genetic fundaments of partner selection and bonding. In particular I will review exciting research performed on pairbonding animals, where simple pharmacological or genetic manipulations of the oxytocin or vasopressin system can induce or abolish their ability to form pair-bonds or mother-child attachments.
