how do you measure love?  for the 1st annual love competition, the stanford center for cognitive and neurobiological imaging skipped words, actions and feelings in favor of a fmri.  7 contestants (a mix of men and women, ages 10-75) were given 5 minutes in the machine to love someone/something as hard as they can.  meanwhile, researchers tracked activity along the dopamine, seratonin & oxytocin/vasopressin pathways in their brains, which is believed to be a prime indicator of love.  the person with the most activity was the winner.

one of the best things about this doc (directed by brent hoff) is hearing the different kinds of love that the contestants were thinking about.  if you were competing, what love would you focus on?
