"Mapping the Terrain of Love: Where and How Different Loves Are Felt"

New research at Aalto University explores where and how different types of love are felt in the body.

Close relationships exhibit the strongest experiences of love, according to philosopher Pärttyli Rinne.

Researchers surveyed participants on 27 types of love, mapping their physical and mental intensity.

Findings suggest a continuum of love intensity from weak to strong, with all types strongly felt in the head.

Data collected through an online survey, mainly from young women in higher education.

The study reveals a strong correlation between physical and mental intensity of love and its pleasantness.

Cultural differences and demographics impact the experience of love, influencing its strength and nature.
