Study: The caudate nucleus is involved in human romantic love. Individuals in love for longer periods of time (e.g., 2.3 years versus 7 months), also showed activity in the insular cortex (processing of emotions, registering butterflies in the stomach) and in the anterior cingulate gyrus (attention, working memory, and emotions interact).
