“The Neuroscience of Pleasure: How your brain responds to music, love, and chocolate.”

What happens in the brain when we fall in love or when love goes awry? Does chocolate activate the same brain chemistry as someone we can’t stop thinking about?

Renowned Neuroscientist Dr. Larry Sherman and singer/songwriter/pianist Naomi LaViolette, along with the Portland Chamber Orchestra answer these and other questions about pleasure and love in a multi-media concert and lecture mixing music (ranging from Puccini to Sondheim), humor, and neuroscience in an unforgettable evening.

Valentine’s day, February 14th 2023 at the Patricia Reser center for the arts in Beaverton.

Tickets available at Use the coupon code pdxpipeline for a ticket discount.

    This event is right up our alley. And we’ve been wanting to see Portland chamber orchestra for years.

    Would love to be considered for this event. I have been avidly healing my brain for 2 years after a major car accident. The more neuroscience the better for me. Never heard of this type of offering & would enjoy this incredible opportunity and experience.

    As a 64 year old single person….
    I love science.
    I think I’m addicted to chocolate.
    I am the personification of genuine Love.
    And music is my therapy!
