  1. 1. On oxytocin and social behavior

    Author : Daniel Hovey; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oxytocin; social cognition; autism; antisocial behavior; zebrafish;

    Abstract : Complex social cognitive processes underlie social behavior. Oxytocin has long been recognized as crucial in social behavior in animals, but its role in regulating human social cognition and behavior is less clear, particularly with regard to endogenous oxytocin. READ MORE

  2. 2. Involvement of vasopressin and oxytocin in the regulation of human uterine activity

    Author : Margareta Steinwall; Urogynekologi och reproduktionsfarmakologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; andrology; gynaecology; Obstetrics; uterine activity; oxytocin mRNA; EP2 agonist; receptors; antagonists; oxytocin; vasopressin; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi;

    Abstract : Vasopressin and oxytocin seem to have pivotal roles in the pathophysiology of primary dysmenorrhoea and preterm labour. Prostaglandins are also involved in the regulation of uterine activity with different receptors mediating both stimulation and relaxation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Receptor-mediated uterine effects of oxytocin and vasopressin

    Author : Ragner Liedman; Lund Obstetrik och gynekologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurohypophyseal; vasopressin receptor; oxytocin; pregnancy; oxytocin and vasopressin V1a antagonist; prostaglandin F2 alpha; primary dysmenorrhoea;

    Abstract : The neurohypophyseal hormones oxytocin and vasopressin are important in the regulation of uterine contractility. These hormones, as well as prostaglandin F2α, are most forceful myometrial tissue contractors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Obsessive-compulsive disorder, serotonin and oxytocin : treatment response and side effects

    Author : Mats B. Humble; Ingemar Engström; Lars von Knorring; Lars Kjellin; Lil Träskman-Bendz; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adverse effects; Obsessive-compulsive disorder; Orgasm; Oxytocin; Randomised controlled trial; Rating scale; Response prediction; Serotonin; Serotonin uptake inhibitors; Sexual function; Psychiatry; Psykiatri;

    Abstract : Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), with a prevalence of 1-2 %, frequently leads a chronic course. Persons with OCD are often reluctant to seek help and, if they do, their OCD is often missed. This is unfortunate, since active treatment may substantially improve social function and quality of life. READ MORE

  5. 5. OXYTOCIN AND VASOPRESSIN IN UTERINE ACTIVITY. Receptor-mediated agonism and antagonism with special regard to the aetiology and treatment of preterm labour and primary dysmenorrhoea

    Author : Thomas Bossmar; Lund Obstetrik och gynekologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstetrics; primary dysmenorrhoea.; preterm labour; vasopressin antagonist; receptors; oxytocin antagonist; vasopressin; Oxytocin; gynaecology; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet;

    Abstract : With a view to the aetiology and treatment of preterm labour and primary dysmenorrhoea we studied the influence of sexual steroids on the plasma levels of oxytocin and vasopressin, effect of these peptides on uterine contractility in vitro and in vivo, receptor concentrations and antagonists to oxytocin and vasopressin. In postmenopausal women oestrogen increased the concentrations in plasma of both peptides, whereas progesterone increased oxytocin but decreased vasopressin levels. READ MORE
