Kinsey Institute director and oxytocin researcher Sue Carter, Ph.D. talks about the surprising science of love.
When most people have questions about love or sex, they talk to friends, scour the Internet, and maybe call into a radio talk show. Me? I ask my mom, who also happens to be Sue Carter, Ph.D., the director of the Kinsey Institute and the scientist who first discovered the critical role hormones such as oxytocin play in pair-bonding (which is basically a more clinical way of saying “love”). With Valentine’s Day approaching, I thought it’d be a good time to talk to Carter (writer’s note: it’s really weird calling your mother by her last name, but I find it unlikely that repeatedly calling a source “Mom” will be kosher with my editors) about the surprising science behind oxytocin and what we call love.
