Love-sick in the hospital

8 06 2009

In the Amsterdam  VU hospital this  weekend was a onetime polyclinic for people that were either extremely in love or were love-sick. It was a serious project with tons of doctors who really read into the whole phenomenon. Everybody knows the common side effects of being in love like butterflies, shaky hands. Or feeling depressed when love sick. This weekend people were tested on other physical changes. First people’s blood pressure, heart rate and transpiration were measured while their eyes were closed. After seeing a picture of their loved ones, everything went up very fast. There was also a big increase in the pupil size of people’s eyes. Unfortunately there is not a cure yet for either love sickness!
