G Reading
Read an article about love and hate, and complete the sentences below with one or two words from
the article.

A love-hate relationship
People say that there is a fine line between love and hate. Recently, however, scientists have carried
out a study which discovered that biologically the two are much closer than we previously thought.
Love and hate, they say, are closely linked within the brain. Scientists who were actually
researching how the feeling of hate works within humans discovered that some of the same neural
circuits in the brain were used during the feelings of both love and hate.
So how did they find out? Seventeen people who said they really hated one person were chosen to
be tested in a laboratory experiment. Most of them chose somebody they had known, or maybe a
work colleague, although one person chose a famous politician! A brain scanner was then used to
find out how neural circuits in their brain behaved when they were shown pictures of those people.
The results showed that the neural circuits which became active were in two parts of the brain
called the putamen and the insula. These parts also become active in situations that involve
romantic love.
People can do extreme things both in the name of love and hate, and the results of this experiment
could explain why both emotions can result in extreme behaviour. Professor Semir Zeki, of
University College, London, led the experiment. He said that hate is often considered to be bad and
it is often thought that humans should learn to control it. For a biologist, however, both hate and
love are of equal interest. This is because hate, like love, can be a very irrational emotion, and it can
therefore make people do either extremely brave or extremely bad things.
One major difference between love and hate, however, is that large parts of the brain those
associated with judgement and reasoning switch off when you see someone you love, but only a
small area is switched off when you see someone you hate. This means that you may want to judge
the person you hate, but you are likely to be less critical and judgemental of people you love.

Example:
There is a close biological link between love and hate.

31 The emotion of hate uses the same in the brain as love.


32 An was carried out to find out how peoples brains behaved when they saw
something or someone they hated.
33 Two sections of the brain when people are in love or hate something or
someone.
34 Many people think that hate is an emotion that we need to .
35 You are more likely to be of people you hate than those you love.
