It can cut like a knife, it can tear lives apart, it can even make people kill… Individuals react differently to rejection, but, for most, the effects are often distressing and devastating. In this episode of ‘Exposed’, Psychologist Dr John Marsden investigates the results that social and romantic rejection can have on people’s brains, body and behaviour (tonight at 8.30pm on TV ONE).

Using the latest neuro-imaging technology, Marsden examines the links between social rejection and physical pain; he finds out why rejection can lead to crimes of passion and revenge; and how early childhood experiences of rejection can effect people’s ability to form secure relationships as adults.
“As a million love songs testify, having your heart broken is one of the worst things that can happen to a human being but most of us feel that finding true love is worth the risk,” explains Marsden.

“Being in love isn’t just emotional, it’s a chemical high as feel good hormones are pumped through our bodies. Breaking up means going cold turkey.”

He says people use the same words to describe rejection as they do for pain – such as ‘their feelings are hurt’ or ‘their heart is broken’ – but just how similar are physical and emotional pain? Does it really hurt to lose the one we love?” Tonight’s ‘Exposed’ shows scientific experiments, combined with personal stories of unrequited love and social isolation, to reveal why rejection can be so painful, how men and women respond differently and what can be done to mend a broken heart and move on.

Territorial instincts, survival mechanisms, pack hierarchies, social phobias… think you’re above them? Think again. Using the latest scientific research, British series ‘Exposed’ sees Dr John Marsden examine how people’s behaviour and actions are often determined by their genetic make-up, hormones and upbringing, and not, as they may like to think, by their own free will (tonight at 8.30pm on TV ONE).

‘Exposed’ shows that with a greater understanding of human behaviour, and the reasons and motives behind it, people can better understand how to survive the trials of modern life.
The first episode of ‘Exposed’ looks at liars, while subsequent episodes look at heartbreak, the power of persuasion and the behaviour of city dwellers. The series draws on the contributions of a diverse group of participants, from compulsive liars, serial daters and the hypnotist who can pull teeth without anaesthetic, to victims of street violence. Dr John Marsden is a chartered psychologist and senior lecturer in addictive behaviour at London’s Institute of Psychiatry and a senior member of the UK National Addiction Centre.

Tonight’s episode of ‘Exposed’ sees Marsden attempt to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding this most powerful of human instincts. Everybody’s done it and everybody will probably do it again, yet lying is a barely understood human trait. Why do people tell lies? Are liars born or made? And, how is it possible to beat the most famous of lie detectors – the polygraph? It’s been estimated that there are 111 different types of lie – some good, some bad, and a few just plain evil. Individually people tell as many as 15 porkies a week, and are on the receiving end of even more. And yet despite the fact lying is everywhere, few other human traits are so little understood.

In exploring just why people tell lies, Marsden meets Donald Bickerstaff, a man who lied himself into a $15 million fortune, and finds out from his victims just what it was like to have their life turned upside down by someone unable to feel guilt.

Learning how to protect against the dangers of deceit, Marsden meets Beth Shannon, a woman with the ability to spot over 90 per cent of all lies, and discovers precisely how to beat that most famous of lie detectors – the polygraph. And while attempting to discover whether liars are born or made, Marsden learns that the secret lies within a portion of the brain, no bigger than the size of an almond.
