gaze at art


according to a study last year from 
University College London, 
when people looked at paintings they liked, 
MRIs showed that the medial orbitofrontal cortex,
part of the brain that governs pleasure, lit up. 
the caudate nucleus, 
which is the nerve center relating to 
romantic love, also brightened.
