The neural basis of romantic love reports a functional magnetic resonance imaging study on romantic love. Subjects viewed pictures of their loved ones and of their ordinary friends.

Group 1 of 17 all right-handed except one-handed normal volunteers with 6 males and 11 females were included in the study. The group had a mean age of 24.5 with a range from 21 to 37.

The 17 subjects were selected from a larger group of approximately 70 respondents.

[edit] Results

The coordinates are presumably reported in MNI space since SPM99 was used. Coordinates are peaks with a threshold on a p-value on 0.001 uncorrected for multiple comparisons.
