The Speed of Passionate Love, As a Subliminal Prime: A High-Density Electrical Neuroimaging Study
Stephanie Cacioppo, Scott T. Grafton , Francesco Bianchi-Demicheli
In line with the psychological model of self-expansion, recent neuroimaging evidence shows an overlap between the brain network mediating passionate love and that involved in self-representation. Nevertheless, little remains known about the temporal dynamics of these brain areas. To address this question, we recorded brain activity from 20 healthy participants using high-density electrophysiological recordings while participants were performing a cognitive priming paradigm known to activate the so-called love brain network.
