New Delhi, Sep 24 (PTI) Researchers have created a map of the human body showing where different forms of love are felt and the intensity with which they are felt.

For building the map, the researchers from Aalto University, Finland, used data collected by surveying hundreds of participants about how they experienced 27 different types of love, such as romantic love, sexual love, parental love, and love for friends, strangers, nature, God, or themselves.

They also asked them where they felt the different types of love in their body and how intensely they felt it physically and mentally.
