Scientists at the department of neurology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine have been messing with a few minds in love. They're studying how the brain processes feelings of love and sex. They've found a few interesting things: One of them being that brains in love look different from brains in lust, or what I like to call sexy brain. Another one is that the chemical dopamine produced in the brain when you fall in love does mimic a cocaine high. I guess this is a vindication for all the men who say that "it was only one night, and it didn't mean anything." They may not be lying after all.
When you fall in love, "exactly the same system becomes active as when you take cocaine. You can feel intense elation when you're in love. You can feel intense elation when you're high on cocaine."
