Oxytocin is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the body. Interest in it’s possible role in increasing empathy between people sprung from the recognition that women who have recently given birth have much higher levels of it in the bloodstream than other women do. For several years now, researchers have been investigating oxytocin as a possible treatment for shyness, social anxiety, and possibly even other psychological handicaps or disorders such as autism or schizophrenia. Reports of such research now appear regularly in the newspapers and popular and online media, such as this report on Oxytocin featured in USA TODAY.
