If you give chocolates to your beloved on Valentine's Day, chances are they will be in a heart-shaped box. We usually associate love as being seated in the heart. But as recent studies by neuroscientists show, love is actually very much in our heads. Lucy Brown, a neuroscientist at The Albert Einstein School of Medicine, has studied romantic love using functional magnetic resonance imaging. Dr. Brown will talk about her studies on what happens in our brains at different stages of love: falling in love, being rejected by a lover, and longterm love. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most commonly diagnose condition among sleep-related breathing disorders and can lead to debilitating and sometimes fatal consequences for the 18 million Americans who have been diagnosed with the disorder.
