Chemistry, Love and Gender

This presentation features a lighthearted but scientific look at a topic of interest to all. The chemistry of the brain “in love” is examined, as well as the possible existence of aphrodisiacs and love potions. Chemical sex attractants in insects constitute the background to a discussion of possible analogues to these compounds in humans. This talk is of interest to anyone who ever has been, or ever plans to be “in love,” as well as to anyone else.
