The effects of a course of intranasal oxytocin on social behaviors in youth diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders: a randomized controlled trial.

The Role of Oxytocin in Human Affect
A third possible alternative explanation for the impact of oxytocin on negative social emotions is proposed and evidence is reviewed to support the social-approach/withdrawal hypothesis and provide directions for future studies.
