The brains of people shown images of their lovers react similarly to those of drug addicts, a US experiment found.


  Researchers looked at magneticresonanceimages of the brains of 10 women and seven men who claimed to be deeply in love.


  The length of their relationships ranged from one month to less than two years. Participants were shown photographs of their beloved, and photos of a similar-looking person.


  The brains of the smitten participants reacted to photos of their sweethearts, producing emotional responses in the same parts of the brain normally involved with motivationand reward.


  "Intensepassionatelove uses the same system in the brain that gets activated when a person is addicted to drugs," said study co-author Arthur Aron, a psychologistat the State University. In other words, you start to crave the person you're in love with like a drug, the researchers said.
