The efficacy and reliability of using intranasal oxytocin (OT) to clinically enhance social functions remains undependable. We discuss the potential benefit of concurrent administration of OT and naloxone (NAL) to robustly modulate social behavior.

Abstract

The efficacy and reliability of using intranasal oxytocin (OT) to clinically enhance social functions remains undependable. We discuss the potential benefit of concurrent administration of OT and naloxone (NAL) to robustly modulate social behavior. We further suggest that combinatorial neuropharmacology approaches should exploit the interactions between OT and serotonin to regulate social functions.
