Love Among the Neurons – May 6

How did the human race evolve from rather solitary predators into the intensely social creatures that we are now? Where in the brain can we find the roots of our multiple connections to each other, and how do those connections reverberate within and between us? Pascal famously wrote, "The heart has reasons that reason cannot comprehend." Today, Pascal would admit that very reasonable "comprehension" has been attained by modern psychology and neuroscience.
Our speaker, Dr. Thomas Lewis, is Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCSF and Professor at USF's Fromm Institute. He is also co-author of the book A General Theory of Love.
