Node 5 • Radlická 50, Prague, Czechia

On April 20th at 7:00 PM in Prague, molecular biologist and science journalist Irina Yakutenko will give a lecture on the topic "Sensual Calculation: Why and How We Fall in Love."

What happens to us when we fall in love, and why does this feeling seem so magical? Which substances control the butterflies in our stomach, and can scientists influence them? Why do some people fall in love every month, while others never meet their love throughout their entire lives? Finally, what is the nature of love: is it a divine gift from above or a convenient tool through which evolution compels us to obediently do what is beneficial for its goals?

All of these questions will be addressed in Irina Yakutenko's lecture.

Irina Yakutenko is a molecular biologist, science journalist, and author of the books "Willpower and Self-Control: How Genes and the Brain Hinder Us in Resisting Temptations" and "The Virus That Broke the Planet." She is also the author of the popular Telegram channel "Will-less Masons."

The lecture will take place in Prague on April 20th at 7:00 PM at Node 5, located at Radlická 50.

The lecture will be conducted in Russian.
A discussion will follow the lecture.
