London, Feb 18: A new study suggests that love at first sight is a myth and it does not exist.
According to the study, the speed at which we fall for someone is controlled by a region in the brain called the anterior insula, Metro.co.uk reported.
In a University of Chicago study, a stroke patient with a damaged anterior insula made decisions normally about lust but when it came to love, he needed longer to think.
The researchers said that this makes it possible to disentangle love from other biological drives.
The study is published in the journal Current Trends in Neurology. (ANI)
