How friends matter to your brain - CNN (article link)

Your friends may matter to you in ways that you can't even see - at the level of neural circuitry in the brain.

"It turns out that the brain's frontal midline, an area between the two hemispheres that is associated with socialization and the way you think about yourself, also shows a greater response from friends than strangers, even strangers with similar interests and lifestyles,"
"the scientists saw increased blood oxygenation levels in the frontal midline and associated regions. This indicates increased neuronal activity in those areas."
