Funzing Talks are coming to CARDIFF! After taking London, Manchester & Bristol by storm, our fascinating talks series is here to re-invent your evenings with an array of unique subjects, from inspiring individuals.

We'e proud to present Anna Machin, evolutionary anthropologist, writer and broadcaster, who is the prime contributor to 'Married at First Sight' (Channel 4) and 'Meet the Humans' (BBC Earth).

Love’s been around a long time.

As an evolutionary anthropologist Dr. Anna Machin is fascinated by what makes us fall in love and what keeps us there. In this talk, she will use the results of cutting-edge research in the fields of neuroscience, genetics, evolutionary theory and psychology to explain what happens in our brains when we fall in love and how this affects how we feel and behave when we are in love.

Why do we need love in our lives? How can love be a source of such intense euphoria but at the same time be so incredibly painful? Why are some people better at staying in relationships than others? And is it really the case that love is addictive?

She will explain how a wonderful cocktail of chemicals motivates us to form relationships, how a complex mix of our genetics and psychology combine to influence how we feel when we are in love and what all this new scientific knowledge means for the way we will love in the future.

— Dr. Anna Machin is an evolutionary anthropologist, writer and broadcaster. She is fascinated by the science behind close human relationships; those between lovers, friends, parents and children. She is a visiting academic at the University of Oxford where she researches human social behavior and is a regular contributor to TV, radio and print including two seasons of “Married at First Sight” (Channel 4) and the upcoming series “Meet the Humans” (BBC Earth).
