Biological Anthropologist Helen Fisher talks about how our relationships stay connected.

Her six books examine the evolution, biology, and psychology of human sexuality, marriage, divorce, biologically-based personality styles, the neural chemistry of romantic love, and why we fall in love with one person rather than another.

“Once you begin to really understand the full style of thinking, and you can learn how to reach that style, you can build a happy marriage,” Fisher said.

Her best-selling, recently revised and updated book, The Anatomy of Love, is a contemporary classic on love and the brain, and her two TED talks about human connections have been viewed over twelve million times.

Dr. Fisher recently sat down with Mike Walter at the Aspen Ideas Festival to speak more about why and how we connect with one another and the intricacies of human relationships.
