Today's Topic

If the bags of heart-shaped chocolate at your grocery store haven't given it away yet, Valentine's Day is fast approaching. What better time to explore the science of love? Join us this Thursday as we chat live with two experts on the biological basis of love and other emotions in the animal kingdom. What happens in the brain when we fall in love? Why do animals form bonds? And what is the latest research telling us about our most powerful emotions?

Join us at 3 p.m. EST on Thursday, 9 February, for a live chat on this page. You can leave your questions in the comment box below before the chat starts.
