ReasonNYC presents Helen Fisher, "The Science of Love"
Location: Museum of Sex, New York City
- May 15, 2014
Love is powerful, irrational, addictive. Yet nearly everyone falls in love. Even readers of Reason. Why? Using brain scans, surveys and interviews, anthropologist Helen Fisher explores the drive to love, who we choose and how to use brain science to make love last. On May 15, she will discuss her findings with John Tierney.
Helen Fisher (www.helenfisher.com) PhD, Biological Anthropologist, is a Research Professor and member of the Center for Human Evolution Studies in the Department of Anthropology, Rutgers University and Chief Scientific Advisor to the Internet dating site Match.com. She has conducted extensive research and written five books on the evolution and future of human sex, love, marriage, gender differences in the brain and how your personality type shapes who you are and who you love.
