After volunteering for a brain-imaging experiment meant to locate the part which lights up when you’re in love, comedian Rob Newman emerges with more questions than answers.

Learn all about his quest for answers in The Brain Show, including a specially constructed MRI-hat that will record Robert’s real-time brain activity, at The Leadmill, Sheffield, on February 16. Tickets cost £16, contact
