Blood pumping nitwit!

In humans, Donatella Marazziti, Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the laboratory of Psychopharmacology at the University of Pisa, has found that early stages of romance are linked with diminished levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin and of a serotonin receptor. These two molecules are also depleted in obsessive-compulsive disorder. Since both conditions (to different extents) also give rise to feelings of anxiety and obtrusive thinking, it is tempting to think of early love as a mild, temporary form of obsessive behavior. Early romance is also characterized by higher levels of several different molecules related to stress response. Twelve to 18 months into a relationship, both serotonin and the stress molecules are restored to normal levels.

Falling in love shows the same neurological signs of insanity. The more you know.

The reason we often associate the heart with emotion is do to the physical effects caused on it by chemicals released during emotional activities.The most notable of these is when we experience negative emotional stress. This causes the brain to release catecholamines into the cardiovascular system causing a weakening of the cardiovascular muscle, most effected is the central muscle known as the heart. It literally starts to deteriorate your heart in an effort to save it, but causes it become physically painful. If the emotion is sad enough then the heart can become so soft it can rip in half. This is known as stress cardiomyopathy disorder, or broken heart syndrome. So remember, the next time she breaks your heart, she really is breaking your heart!

So that explains why during this period so many people get married so quick and then divorce shortly after because they realize they really can't stand each other.

Yes, I know there are those who it has worked for, but they're more the exception rather than the rule, just look at the high divorce rates.

The heart actually has its own neurological system, and there have been cases where recipients of heart transplants have gained personality traits from the hearts previous owner.
