Love and Pain, Scientists answer your questions this Valentine's Day!

Feb 14 2012 Published by under Behavioral Neuro

Sci does not celebrate Valentine's Day in general. I prefer to celebrate tomorrow, February 15th, otherwise known as the day when all the chocolate goes 50% off and I wallow in glorious sugar.

But for those of you who want to celebrate Valentine's Day SCIENCE-STYLE, head over to the Stanford website and twitter feed, where they will be having an expert to answer your questions on the neuroscience of pain and how love could affect it. I think it's a fabulous way to do science outreach and get people interested in research.

Follow @@SUMedicine and make sure to add the hashtag #AskSUMed. They'll take your questions until Friday and have a scientist ready to answer!

And tomorrow, or maybe the day after, I'll have to post photos of my post-Valentine's candy haul. 🙂

    My friends and I celebrate Cheap Chocolate Day, on the 15th. On Cheap Chocolate Eve (the 14th), the tradition is to gather and watch movies where shit blows up. (Examples include, but are not limited to, Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, or Beverly Hills Cop.)
