Brain in a heart

What is love? Turns out, it’s all in your head. Join neuroscientist Bianca J. Marlin as she discusses her research on the strong emotional bonds that can exist between humans, like those between parents and children. Marlin’s work investigates the use of neurochemicals like oxytocin (the “love drug”) as a potential treatment to strengthen fragile and broken relationships.
