Originally Aired: Thursday, May 18
Could our genes affect our romantic choices? Does love inhabit a particular region of the brain? If this song makes us too sad to drive straight, why are we playing it on repeat?
Rapper and essayist Dessa returns with the next event in this series – a collision of art, music and scientific research on love, sex and human adventures in pair-bonding.
Dessa had a baaaad break-up. So she assembled a team of researchers, neuroscientists and a clinician to try to remove the lingering love from her brain.
