Love works wonders. Canadian scientists told how love helps to cope with depression.
The study involved 1.4 thousand pairs, in which one of the partners was in a stressed state. The experiment showed that partner support increased self-esteem and accelerated the way out of depression. In addition, love helped to avoid depression in the future. The full article is published in the journal Developmental Psychology.
Previously, experts found out how the feeling of love arose on Earth. This required dolphins and monkeys. The researchers concluded that a sense of love arose when male primates helped females protect children from the aggression of other males of the same species. Thus, the feelings that they experienced transformed into love. It is curious that the instinct corresponds to the same region of the brain.
