What Does Oxytocin – The Love Hormone


Dr Simpson says that there is some evidence that oxytocin also plays a role in social behaviour – but the evidence for this is currently stronger in animals than it is in humans. According to the Society for Endocrinology, oxytocin has “been shown to be important in human behaviours, including sexual arousal, recognition, trust, anxiety and mother-infant bonding.” Research is also being carried out to look at the role of oxytocin in addiction, brain injury, anorexia, stress and depression, among other topics.
