It's been scientifically proved that our feelings com from the center of our brain.

Dude love is something beyond science.. A materialistic person who sees only with his brain can never understand what true love is like. It is true.. yet neuron links cause the levels of the female (estrogen and progesterone) and male (testosterone) hormones to rise, causing our feeling of "love" as we call it. But the love we know it can be seen beyond that. This is the type of love that you are ready to do everything in order your beloved to be good.. it is the type of love to sacrifice yourself in the name of the other person.. It like.. the invisible link between 2 people that you don't see, nor feel. It is just there. Its when you can't be happy, knowing that your beloved person is sad. Its the type of a relationship where you are ready to go threw all the pain you can imagine, knowing that the person next to you will be alright. This is the invisible heart that most people talk about.

I believe it is in both. Your brain puts together all of the thoughts as to why you love or like a person and your heart eventually feels it. Your brain tells you you like or love someone and your heart feels the emotion. I do not know exactly where the heart came into play and who started the words heart break because we all know your heart doesn't really break. I think your heart beats faster when you are nervous and typically around someone you like you get a little nervous. I do think though the brain is where this all begins. We all know if you are brain dead you are technically dead because your brain tells your body what to produce and what to feel.

You are explaining love to me as if I don't know what it is.

I have a daughter, I felt love and I know what it is.

I don't believe in anything supernatural, and what you are describing is indeed supernatural.

Love is created by hormones in your brain - it is a scientific fact.

Dude love is something beyond science

You should probably catch up to the 21st century. Or explain WHY it is beyond science.

A materialistic person who sees only with his brain can never understand what true love is like.

You saying psychiatrists and Nueroscientists can't love? I'm sure they would disagree with you.

This is the type of love that you are ready to do everything in order your beloved to be good.. it is the type of love to sacrifice yourself in the name of the other person

There is no reason why physical origins cannot have these affects.

Its when you can't be happy, knowing that your beloved person is sad.

Empathy limiting your flow of neurotransmitters. Physical and regulated by brain.

This is the invisible heart that most people talk about.

And it all gets built up and sorted in the brain.

Your brain tells you why you love the person. Your heart is what feels. For example does your heart start beating faster when you're around him?Do you get nervous, and get butterflies in your stomach.?

Side: heart

If my heart beats faster when I'm around '' him'', then that's caused by the excessive release of endorphins in my brain. The heart is an organ pumping blood to the rest of your body, that is all it does.

It's poetic and sweet, but it's also ridiculous and a lie.

I'm going to go with brain, because the heart cannot love- all it can do is pump blood.

The whole association of feeling things 'in your heart' or whatever stems from a time when the heart was considered the 'central' organ of the body- before the brain was understood. It's rooted in a fallacious assumption.

Back In the day, I mean way back in the day, our AWESOME ancient Egyptians had the philosophy saying that your soul was located in your heart. They were ancients. You really can't call them dumb, the didn't have the info we have know (Well they did have Medicine, Math, And Technology.) That's probably were that heart shit comes from. But the truth is that your brain contains all your feelings. All your heart does is pump blood.

Your feelings are in your brain, not your heart.

It is actually a chemical thing in the brain that causes the feeling in your heart...so it starts in the brain and then goes to the heart.

According to another study, when you see the person you love the reason your heart starts to beat fast is because of adrenaline. According to Dr. Reginald Ho, the brain sends signals to the adrenal gland, which then secretes hormones and then they go to the heart which causes the heart to beat faster (articles.cnn.com)

Everybody hears the cliche when someone gets dumped. "My heart hearts" But does it actually hurt? And if it does, is it because they were in love? The point of this blog is to put the end to the mystery and bring out the facts.

According to an analysis by a Syracuse professor, it depends. That is a very broad answer but in her analysis she goes on to explain how when you fall in love you experience a similar sensation to one of using cocaine. You get a euphoric feeling but it also affects certain areas of the brain.

Heart is just an organ that pumps blood.You cannot express your emotions through yuor heart. It is only the brain that generates such impulses.

Side: brain

First, this question is based around a metaphor. Our heart just pumps blood, the emotions are, like everything else, regulated by our brain and central nervous system. The emotions do operate differently than the pathways of logic though.

Emotions are simply responses to stimuli, the logic pathways later critique these stimuli. Emotions are faster and much more difficult to control. They also rarely tell you anything of value. Intellectual assessment is ALL about determining value and does so in a much more accurate way than intuitive responses.

The heart is an organ that pumps blood and is controlled by your brain, it does not control your feelings. The brain is so incredibly complex and impressive that saying "I love you from the center of my brain." should really be considered much more romantic than "I love you from the bottom of my heart."

Side: brain

scientifically speaking i think its the brain that controls what we like and what we don't.

the brain makes the heart pump fast or slow. and usually the chest hurts when you're in deep emotional turmoil, for eg. during a breakup that the heart muscles do contract to a greater extent. but it usually is based on the brain as to what the heart should and should not do.

although, figuratively speaking, loving with all your heart and from the bottom of the heart and all that is cute. but i think one should consider and weigh the possibilities regarding the whole 'falling in love' deal.

here again, i think one should look at all the pros and cons of falling in love with a specific person. when you love a person with your brain, then you could go ahead and fall for the person with all your heart.

Heart, by definition, is:

a hollow muscular organ that pumps the blood through the circulatory system by rhythmic contraction and dilation. In vertebrates there may be up to four chambers (as in humans), with two atria and two ventricles.

Brain, by definition, is:

an organ of soft nervous tissue contained in the skull of vertebrates, functioning as the coordinating center of sensation and intellectual and nervous activity.

Our heart is the organ that pumps blood through our body; our brain is the organ that simulates all of our feelings and everything that has to do with the mental state of our body.

Our brain sounds like it'll be more fit to manage love, because love is indeed a feeling and the brain simulates all of our feelings, not our heart.

Could you explain the "good feeling" in your heart? Heart is the life streaming organ and it always causes confusion between itself and the brain. Just because heart is the life-pumping device it doesn't mean you can feel with it or that the feelings are inside. The heart is simply pumping blood and fulfills other roles while the brain with it's 4 major divisions does the rest.

You take things to literal Srom, I understand what you are saying but the fact is all of the human body is controlled by the brain, Love is no different, Love is a chemical reaction within the brain that releases chemicals such as Oxytocin & Serotonin, all emotions are nothing more then a cocktail of chemicals within the brain, including faith.

One can say I love you with all my heart but in reality it's I love you with all my brain, to say other wise would give credit to those that say men think with there d$%k's when we know that isn't true, just as love our d$%k's react to chemicals within our brains that cause men to become aroused and make decisions around our arousal hence men think with there d$%k's.

However it is nice to say I love you with all of my heart and is the reason people say it, I do, but facts are facts our hearts do nothing but pump blood and our brains control everything within our body.

You have most of it correct. However the brain is where most people think logical thoughts and develop conclusions based on input.

The heart does not think and is not logical, it just pumps faster when eye candy is front of it. Regardless of the logical end results of going after that candy.

The heart will lead you to you source of pain and pleasure without thinking. Thus we love without thinking much of the time.

All of the reactions that you have named stem from the brain. From what this article said, I would argue that the brain is the source of the feelings and emotion which causes love. Emotional responses stem from the amygdala, the emotional command center for the brain. Because of this, I would conclude that emotion comes from the brain.

The "heart" is the soul and center of who we are... that's why. I mean, it's like when you say I love you with all my heart, it's like saying everything that I live for and am, is loving you.

I guess just the heart more represents our center than our brain.

How do you know you're loving with your heart instead of your brain? Doesn't make much sense to me how you can feel love in your heart area.

The heart is the organ that pumps blood through our body and the brain is the organ that simulates all of our feelings.

Which one seems more likely to be the source of the feeling of love?

Yes, technically our emotions don't come from our heart, they come from our brain. However, I think you shouldn't over think love. It's an emotion, and it's nearly impossible to control our true feelings. You can't literally love with your heart and I may sound too religious but I think that you don't love with your brain, or your heart, you love with your soul.

Its in your brain. Well, the feelings start in your brain when proteins carry messages through nuerons. The chemicals are released throughout your body at the site or thought of you true love and you feel the physical attraction! I think everyone feels things differently, I think he probablly feels a great feeling in his head- like a light headedness, same as you just in a different place!

There is also another very common cliche. This is the cliche of "love at first sight" Researchers found that yes, there is such thing as love at first sight. So according to this study do you fall in love by you brain or your heart? According to them the answer is the brain but the heart is also involved.
