Interest in Neuroscience of Love
As a neurologist and neuroscientist, Dr. Nour began his interest in the science of love many years ago as he watched some of his friends marry the wrong people while others had very happy marriages. He began lecturing about love in the 1992 at the request of his patients, detailing the biology of mate selection, falling in and out of love, and how the brain-induced chemicals and genes control many aspects of true, everlasting love and how to grow it.
Born in Egypt, Dr. Nour left Cairo in 1977 after graduating in the top of his class at the Medical School of Cairo University. Looking for the freedom to study medical subjects of interest to him in the United States, he made his way to London but got delayed by changes in the immigration law. After many years of private neurology practice in the Midwest, Dr. Nour moved to Southern California. Happily married with two daughters in college, he is now semi-retired. He is an accomplished painting artist, videographer, photographer and a graphic designer. He designed his book cover, his website and draw most illustrations in his book. He enjoys opera, sailing, tennis, bicycling, and learning about other cultures through travel, all while still enjoying helping patients with complex neurological disorders.
