Dr. Ava signs new book, “NeuroLoveology”

Love expert Dr. Ava Cadell hosts special book-signing event on Sunday to celebrate the release of her “NeuroLoveology.”

More than 150 people filled DIESEL, A Bookstore on Sunday in Malibu to meet Dr. Ava Cadell, whose new book, “NeuroLoveology: The Power to Mindful Love & Sex,” explores how the brain processes attraction, relationship conflicts and sexual intimacy.

Dr. Cadell, who holds doctorates in both human behavior and human sexuality, spoke to the enthused crowd and signed copies of the book while guests enjoyed drinks and appetizers by Malibu’s Monrose Catering.

“My two favorite things are the science of love and the brain,” Dr. Cadell said. “And I wanted to find a connection between the two. That’s how I came up with the term ‘NeuroLoveology.'”

Dr. Cadell, who has been married for more than 21 years, used insights from her own relationship in putting the book together. “NeuroLoveology” offers more than 100 “neuro-cises” (brain exercises) to create life-enriching and love-enhancing experiences that help brain cells and relationships grow, she said.
Her one piece of advice for a lasting relationship is to hug.

“Hug for at least six seconds a day,” Dr. Cadell said. “To release oxytocin, which establishes deep intimacy.”
