Why Are We So Wired to Connect?, by Jill Suttie

What drives our powerful need for social interaction? And what makes being alone difficult? These are just a couple of the questions that Matthew Lieberman, a social neurologist from the University of California, explores in his newest book, Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect. Through his research, Lieberman has identified compelling evidence demonstrating the neuroscience behind our human interactions -- with broad implications for how we live our lives. For example, we now know that the connection between physical and social pain is very real -- in that, they are both processed through the same neural pathways. From an evolutionary standpoint, this begs the question -- that perhaps our social connections are more than just a mere luxury, that perhaps they are, in face, a necessity. Our brains are continuously working, and in order to better respond to our environment. This is what our brains were wired for: reaching out to and interacting with others, writes Lieberman. This article shares more.

Great book review about how our brains are wired to connect for survival and how important social connection is to our health and happiness.
