The Love Competition

The Stanford Center for Cognitive and Neurobiological Imaging and filmmaker Brent Hoff hosted the first annual “Love Competition” where 7 people, ages ranging from 10 to 75, “…spent five minutes in an fMRI machine, thinking deeply about love and allowing the imaging technology to measure activity in their dopamine, serotonin and ocytocin/vasopressin pathways.”

Brent’s short film documenting these participants reaction to this experiment makes this worth watching. Who would you think about?
