The chemistry of love
|When:||Tuesday, 31 January 2017 - Tuesday, 31 January 2017|
The Orbit, 81 De Korte Street, Braamfontein
What are the physiological factors that combine in the melting pot of this thing that makes the world go round?
Is there a love map, a kind of template of the perfect partner? Is this based on appearances, personality, a limbic resonance or pheromones (which may even elicit a specific immune response to a potential partner)? Or is it all just guided by hormones?
During this year's first session of Science & Cocktails Johannesburg, Dr Joji Mercier will deconstruct the body's chemistry and physiology involved in attraction and lust: an addictive heady state that swirls us into new romances and reduces us to nervous exhilarated wrecks floating in a parallel universe.
