Following up on his two blockbuster successes, "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life", and "Magnificent Mind At Any Age", award winning psychiatrist, brain imaging researcher, and multiple bestselling author Dr. Daniel Amen brings to public television an exciting new special with a fresh and compelling twist on brain health: How to use your brain to bring and keep more love in your life. Research clearly tells us that being in a healthy, loving, affectionate relationship helps you be happier, live longer and even have a better memory.

One of the most fascinating things Dr. Amen has learned from looking at more than 50,000 brain scans is that when we improve how your brain functions, even if it is troubled, you become more thoughtful, more loving and more effective in ALL of your relationships. Who wants more passion in their lives? Doesn't everyone?

This information applies whether you are single and want to be in a close relationship or you have been married for decades. Having a better brain always brings more love into your life.


To date, Dr. Amen's programs have raised more than $15 million for public television. His generous time spent making live appearances at stations will continue in August and beyond. "The Brain In Love" is fun, highly practical, research-based, and will make a positive difference in the lives of many, many couples.

This program is divided into three parts: In Part One, Dr. Amen shows you how the health of your relationships is directly tied to the health of your brain. Understanding the brain is the MISSING LINK to helping couples and families who struggle.

In Part Two, Dr. Amen discusses the differences between the male and female brain. This is so important, because it is often simple biology that causes us heartache, or should we say brain-ache. He also looks at why beautiful women make men stupid and how Las Vegas uses this principle to take your money and what you can do about it. Plus, he shows you how your hormones affect the health of your brain and how they can either enhance or ruin your relationships.

And in Part Three, Dr. Amen gives you 7 "brain based secrets" to make love last, to make it unforgettable, starting immediately.
