New Delhi: Humans are not the only ones who live in long last love but many other beings also live in love bond for a long time. A research has revealed that apart from humans, some creatures like bats, wolves, foxes and other mammals (animals) are also bound for a long time in love.
Long lasting love
Research says that in some species of primates like Lemurs, the brain circuit responsible for long term bonding is different from other species. In this study published in the Journal of Scientific Reports, the researchers conducted a comparative study of the species within the nearest group of Primate relative lamur in the island of Madagascar.
These creatures live together as a couple
The Red-Bellied Lemurs and Mongoose Lemurs in the Lamur family are Lamur who work together for the protection of their children and their territory as male-female partners live together. These Lemur, once formed a relationship, spend time with each other as pairs and mostly stick to each other.
Consolidation is very mysterious for biologists
Males and females of these species spend a third of their lives with the same partner. But this does not happen with all their species. There are also some nearby species which often keep changing companions. Significantly, for biologists, Monogamy is mysterious because 90 percent of birds have antagonism of a single mate but about 6500 mammal species have open relationships.
Biologists did research
Nicholas, an Associate in the Lab of Duke University Professor Christine Drea and lead author of this study, says that a long-term association of lemur or other species (Species) is an unusual thing, ScienceDaily reports is. This raises the question that what is so special in some species that these organisms form relationships for a long time. Studies over the past thirty years on mating rodents suggest that two hormones originate at the time of contact are oxytocin and vasopressin. This shows that long love is related to how they perform actions in the brain.
What study says
During the study, researchers noticed that there is a difference in the distribution and density of the hormone receptor (Hormone Receptor) in other organisms, including Lemurs and Voles. Meaning that Harmon was working in different places in the brains of Lamur. That is, their effect could also be different. Such differences were seen only in the species of Lamur. Researchers believe that even though Oxytocin Volumes works in surrender, the same effect can happen to some extent on Lamur and humans as well.
