Johnson has hit upon a core aspect of human nature. The brain circuitry for attachment most likely evolved over four million years ago as our forebears inched onto the open plains of Africa and females began to need partners to help protect them and provide for them as they carried their helpless young. Attachment lives deep in primordial pathways in the brain. And Johnson’s impressive work at commandeering this brain system to rehabilitate failing partnerships is an important contribution to those lost in the thicket of unhappy pair-bonding.
