Because love is blind

    Because love is blind "Love is blind" goes a popular saying and now the scientific reality supports this idea. When a person in love passionately sees the image of the loved one parts of his brain are activated but curiously the frontal lobes decrease their activity. We all know that the frontal lobes are charged with self-control, calculation and judgment par excellence. Thus, we could understand why when we fall in love we show ourselves less critical than our loved one, our ability to judge is attenuated. Some call it nicely: the madness of love. It is important to emphasize that critical ability does not stop with everyone or everything, but only in relation to the loved one. Furthermore, this state is not maintained forever, it is evident only in the early stages of falling in love and passion; once the relationship becomes stable, the person returns to take a critical attitude. However, the suspension of the critical capacity is not only highlighted during lovemaking but also in maternal love as you can see in the image at the beginning of the article. Mothers tend to be less critical of their own children than of others' children. This change is closely related to chemical changes in which substances such as dopamine, responsible for interpersonal attraction, or serotonin, which plays a fundamental role in obsessive thoughts, are generated. There is also a decrease in activity in regions related to negative emotions and activation in reward areas, a reaction of euphoria quite similar to that seen in the brains of drug addicts. In short, when we are in love we would pass through a state that is a middle ground between madness and drug addiction, even if in addition to what the scientific results say it is a highly pleasant state that can change our lives in a wonderful way. , or ... who knows, maybe it will be that I am in love and I cannot discern correctly?
