Is love an art or a science? Just in time for Valentine’s Day, James Olds, director of the Krasnow Institute, explains that falling in love is not entirely in our control. Rather, he says, it is a combination of voluntary and involuntary neurobiological processes.

You can hear the full explanation on Sunday, Feb. 13, when Olds appears on With Good Reason, the statewide public radio program that features faculty members from Virginia colleges and universities speaking on topics of public interest. The show airs at midnight on WAMU 88.5 FM. On the same show, French professor Raymond Cormier of Longwood College discusses how courtly love and chivalry still live in the 21st century.
