Our brains 'light up' when in lovePosted on: February 13, 2013 17:13:31
Ever wondered how you know whether or not your date is a keeper? Well, according to scientists, it's possible to find out if you're in it for the long haul just by looking at how much your brain 'lights up'.
New findings by researchers in New York suggest that there is even more going on in that head of yours than you might think when you stumble across someone special in your life, with different brain patterns between people who have recently fallen in love being identified.
Working with 12 volunteers, scientists believe they have cracked the change in activity within a brain to be able to work out whether or not people are likely to be together for years to come.
Professor Arthur Aron, a social psychologist at Stony Brook University in Long Island, said there are subtle indicators which suggest how stable a relationship is.
To reach these results, respondents were shown images of their partner and were asked to conjure up existing memories they had together during a brain scan.
The findings indicated that individuals who showed more activity in the part of the brain which reacts to emotions and beauty, but less in the area linked to criticism and judgement, were most likely to still be in a relationship a few years down the line.
"If that strong feeling was combined with signs that they could regulate emotions, to see the partner positively and deal with conflict, then it seems to be really productive in staying with the person," Professor Aron explained.
However, to be able to enjoy a lasting relationship there is a long list of things you need to tick off before you can call it 'serious', a recent survey suggested.
Findings by socked.co.uk found that you will have to endure 22 meals out with your loved one, go on two holidays together and spend as much as £3,000 on gifts before it is deemed long-term, the MailOnline reported.
