Pasadena speed dating events
PASADENA, Calif.—For speed daters, first impressions are everything.
But it's more than just whether someone is hot or not.
Whether or not we like to admit it, we all may make snap judgments about a new face.
And almost nothing is known about how this type of rapid judgment is made by the brain."In the study, 39 heterosexual male and female volunteers were placed in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (f MRI) machine and then shown pictures of potential dates of the opposite sex.
They were given four seconds to rate, on a scale from 1 to 4, how much they would want to date that person.
