When a person meets their idol what part of the brain becomes highly activated?
For instance when a fan is in the front row and the singer of a rock band comes up to the front row and reaches out with their hands, the fan will most likely reach out their hand in hopes of connecting with that musician.
My question is what part of the brain longs for or triggers the chemical release to want this sort of connection? Or what part of the brain is stimulated?
