Handbook of Oxytocin Research: Synthesis, Storage and Release, Actions and Drug Forms $195.00
Editors: Hugo Jastrow and Daniela Feuerbach
Book Description:
Oxytocin is a mammalian hormone that also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. Oxytocin is a peptide of nine amino acids (a nonapeptide). It is best known for its roles in female reproduction: it is released in large amounts after distension of the cervix and vagina during labor, and induction of milk ejection in facilitating birth and breastfeeding. Recent studies have begun to investigate oxytocin's role in various behaviors, including social recognition, bonding, anxiety, trust, and maternal behaviors. This new and important book gathers the latest research from around the globe in this field.
