This Funzing Experience:

What drives us to be attracted to someone specifically? What causes us to fall in love? What is 'the love hormone' and how can we produce more of it? Join Molecular Genetics experts Dr Liora Vilmovsky & Dr Adi Naamati for an alluring talk on the science behind our emotion.

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” ― Dr. Seuss

This amazing emotional overflow caused by ‘love', affects us all. But what exactly is love from a scientific point of view?

In this talk, we'll review the different forces that gravitate us toward another person, explore the biological purpose of love, and what processes cause this emotion in our brain; looking at the 3 x stages of love, what is the goal is for each, and the different hormones involved.

We will specifically elaborate about attraction, why are we attracted to one person and not another. What are the factors we are not completely aware of, and can we really be certain that attraction in solely biological driven?

During this talk, we will review relevant facts and examples from different animals (and humans) based on extensive scientific research, while keeping the information easy to understand to fit non scientific background.

Speakers:

Liora Vilmovsky holds a Ph.D. from the Molecular Genetics Department at the Weizmann Institute of Science, and she recently finished her Postdoctoral research in Cambridge. Her 15 years of research include topics in Cell Biology, Genetics and Neuroscience.

Adi Naamti holds a Ph.D. from the Molecular Genetic and Microbiology Department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. At the present she is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Medicine in the Cambridge University. Her research focuses on Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Microbiology and Virology.
