Thinking Thursday: The Look of Love

Today I have a special Valentines Day edition of my weekly science post.

Have you ever looked at someone you love and been able to see their affection for you in their eyes? I know I have. When Steven looks at me his eyes sparkle and he looks like a kid with a new puppy.

From Science Friday:

“Psychologist Bruno Laeng, of the University of Oslo, says our pupils don’t just respond to light, but to thoughts too. Studies show that our pupils dilate when something captures our attention, including when we feel strong emotions. Laeng discusses how psychologists are using “pupillometry” in the lab.”

For some reason the video won’t embed in this post, so if you’re interested you can check out the original article here!

Hope you get that look of love from someone today! Happy Valentines Day.
