The effects on social recognition memory of (Arg(8))-vasopressin (AVP-(1-9), [pGlu(4), Cyt(6)]AVP-(4-8) and oxytocin locally administered into the rat's septum were investigated. In the behavioural paradigm used, a juvenile intruder was presented to an adult resident male rat twice for 5 min, with an inter-exposure interval of 120 min.
