How much dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin can you activate in your brain, while thinking about love?
Filmmaker Brent Hoff teamed up with neuroscientists from Stanford University in this project, The Love Competition, to measure brain activity among seven contestants as they tried to love someone as hard as they could.
As the first annual Love Competition, nobody had expectations of winning. The scientists involved, too, had no expectations of the outcome.
But submitting to science and wilfully evoking life experiences about love was an overwhelming experience for everyone, even for the guy who was overcoming a bad breakup.
Stay until the credits end for his happy face! He was also a winner 😉
