In recent years, much attention is paid to the neurological and neurochemical bases of social behaviors and interpersonal relationships. The most striking finding is that in humans and other animals work, in fact, one and the same system of regulation of these complex behaviors. The animals in the central nervous system has a very ancient neural circuits, neural networks, it specializes in the management of sexual and social behavior.

An important role in these systems play neuropeptides oxytocin and vasopressin (or very similar to them, their related neuropeptides).

This perceive indirect confirmation of the psychological theory that love is based on the desire to expand the internal self-image by turning the other person in the image.
