Roberts SC (2015) Why the 'love hormone' may be less rosy and more rosé than we thought. The Conversation. 20.05.2015.
First paragraph: A decade ago, a revolutionary paper showed that a hormone called oxytocin can actually make us trust other people. This spawned a flurry of research that revealed oxytocin’s potential to boost social interactions. Now a new study has shown that the hormone is actually very similar to alcohol, a well-known social lubricant. However, just like alcohol, it has a dark side.
