Brain imaging study sheds light on the neural mechanisms underlying romantic relationship maintenance

“Having an intimate romantic relationship is an important aspect of life for most people,” Ueda told PsyPost. “Our study has provided empirical evidence to reveal the neural mechanisms underlying relationship maintenance: the brain’s center of pleasure and addiction, the nucleus accumbens, encodes a relationship partner in a distinctive way from unfamiliar nonpartners. We think that the unique neural representations of a relationship partner might be associated with single-minded romantic relationships.”
