A role for central vasopressin in pair bonding in monogamous prairie voles
TLDR
It is demonstrated that central AVP is both necessary and sufficient for selective aggression and partner preference formation, two critical features of pair bonding in the monogamous prairie vole.
The effects of oxytocin and vasopressin on partner preferences in male and female prairie voles (Microtus ochrogaster).
TLDR
Either AVP or OT is sufficient to facilitate social contact if either the OT or AVP receptor is available, however, the formation of partner preferences may require access to both AVP and OT receptors.

Oxytocin Administered Centrally Facilitates Formation of a Partner Preference in Female Prairie Voles (Microtus ochrogaster)
TLDR
The hypothesis that oxytocin participates in the partner preference component of pair bond formation in adult prairie voles is tested and it is suggested that it may be one factor contributing to the development of partner preferences in this monogamous rodent.
