  • Personal Update: PhD, Three Months Later

    There is life after the PhD? I defended my thesis and received my PhD in November 2013. Being done with this monumental task that I had started more years ago than I care to admit and had worked so hard to get, felt good. There were no fireworks or ecstatic bliss (not that I expected any), but it felt good. Good to be done with it, over with, off my back. Good to be finally able to start the rest of my life.

Is there a neural correlate to #nonmonogamy? A new study with a sample size of 10 monogamous and 10 non-monogamous men (mean age of 34) sought to find out. In this study, researchers examined participants’ brain activation in response to sexual and romantic stimuli. Results indicated that monogamous men showed more reward-related neural activity when viewing images designed to evoke the concepts of #love and #romance (including images independent of the participants’ own relationships) compared to non-monogamous men. Areas with increased activation for monogamous men were all in the right hemisphere and included the thalamus, accumbens, striatum, pallidum, insula, and orbitofrontal cortex. There were *no* significant differences between groups in activation to sexual stimuli. These results demonstrate that the neural processing of romantic images is different for monogamous and non-monogamous men, suggesting that non-monogamy is not just a random choice.
