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. The aims of this thesis were to investigate (i) how endogenous oxytocin affects face and emotion recognition in humans, (ii) how it may modulate social impairments in autism spectrum disorder and antisocial behavior, (iii) how exogenous... more
