Love and Loss Across Species Lines: The Neuroscience of Attachment

The latest exhibition on display in FUSION: A STEAM Gallery on Level 3 explores the joy of our connections with animals, as well as the sorrow we feel when we lose them.

Human beings have the unusual capacity to form enduring emotional bonds, not only with other people, but also with members of other species. Our cross-species connections include special bonds with companion animals, deep emotional concern for the well-being of endangered animals, and empathy for animals that have been poorly treated by various industries.

This exhibit explores the joy of our connections with animals, as well as the sorrow we feel when we lose them. The knowledge we gain from scientific studies of attachment processes helps us to better understand and appreciate our complex, entangled, and interdependent lives.
