    Research suggest that humans are serial monogamists. While we learn from songs, movies and fairy tales that life is all about finding the perfect partner, about romance, soulmates, and lifelong relationships; biology tells us otherwise. Neuroscientists and neurobiologists have looked at the neuronal correlates of love, using brain imaging techniques and animal models. Reviewing various

    There are many things that make a person nicer, and genes might be one of them, according to new research at the University of California and the University at Buffalo. The study, based on surveys and DNA samples from 711 people, measured how genetic receptors for two hormones, oxytocin and vasopressin, affect human behaviour. All
