Oxytocin as treatment of Autism

Eric Hollander, a psychiatrist and expert on autism, is to give a talk on the latest research on the possible use of oxytocin in the treatment of autism.  Hollander himself has recently led a team of researchers which found that oxytocin enhanced the ability to recognize emotions such as anger or happiness in the tone of a speaker’s voice.  The talks will be held at the Seaver and New York Autism Center of Excellence at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York on November the 12th.
