In the late 1990s, before Sandra Langeslag began attending college, she was dumped. Then a few months later, she fell in love again.
“I was very curious. I had these two experiences that were so opposite,” she said. “Why did I feel the way that I feel?"
She was about to begin her studies as a psychology major. Eventually, her interest in the subject of love led her to search for papers to explain the connection between the brain and the experience of falling in love. As it turns out, there weren’t many.
