The purpose of the Workshop is to highlight new perspectives on the role of oxytocin in modulating brain activity in relation to behavior and cognition. The workshop will cover a number of issues related to the brain mechanisms regulating its synthesis and release, and its effects on different aspects of behavior. The precise neural mechanisms of oxytocin are still debated, and it is therefore important to understand how its action could impact different neural circuitry related to reward, anxiety, attention, social perception and bonding.
