Keynote: The Science behind Love and Monogamy
Artworks and narrative often tell us that love is something we cannot define, reduce or pin down. But growing body of knowledge from scientific research seem to tell us different. Is love purely physiological, chemical, hormonal? How did love mechanisms evolve to become part of our brains and bodies? Molecular geneticist and science communicator Dr. Liat Yakir will explore the fascinating (and sometimes unsettling) insights emerging from an evolutionary perspective on human love.
