In humans, romantic love consists of three independent systems: sexual desire, infatuation, and attachment. University of Missouri – St. Louis psychology professor and researcher, Sandra Langeslag, talks about the interaction between infatuation and cognition in this illuminating look at The Brain in Love. How does infatuation affect attention and memory? Why do infatuated individuals find it so hard to concentrate on other things, such as their (home)work? What happens in the brain when people fall in love? Can feelings of love be increased and decreased at will?
