Friday 7 February 2020 – Janice Hiller
A Cafe Psy discussion, led by Janice Hiller, on Arousal, Kissing and Intimacy: A neuropsychosexual approach
Developing and maintaining an intimate relationship is often a driving force throughout life, combining intense joy and huge disappointment. As a relationship progresses we go through different stages, underpinned by brain states that neuroscientists have begun to explore in recent years. Arousal and attraction is now a topic for research, using new brain scanning techniques and measuring hormone levels circulating in the blood. Much remains to be uncovered as this area is still very new, but interesting results have emerged. This talk will describe some neurobiological research into sexual intimacy and how it could enhance our understanding of phases in relationships – how can couples remain attached, and which behaviours are potentially damaging.
