  • Reduction in behavior problems with omega-3 supplementation in children aged 8-16 years: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, stratified, parallel-group trial - J Child Psychol Psychiatry. 2014 Aug 22 - "a community sample of 8-16 year old children were randomized into a treatment group (N = 100) and a placebo-control group (N = 100). The supplementation consisted of a fruit drink containing 1 g/day of omega-3 or a placebo consisting of the same fruit drink without omega-3 ... Findings provide initial evidence that omega-3 supplementation can produce sustained reductions in externalizing and internalizing behavior problems" - [Nutra USA] - See fish oil supplements at Amazon.com.
  • Oxytocin promotes social behavior in infant rhesus monkeys - Science Daily, 4/28/14 - "The infant monkeys inhaled an aerosolized dose of oxytocin in one session, and a dose of saline in the other ... Overall, the monkeys were more communicative after receiving oxytocin, more frequently making facial gestures, than they were after receiving the saline ... After oxytocin exposure, the strong imitators were more likely to look at caregivers and stand close to them than they were after the saline. Looking into a caregiver's face and remaining in close proximity to a caregiver are indicators of social interaction and social interest ... In another test, the researchers found that after exposure to oxytocin, monkeys had lower levels of cortisol in their saliva. Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands in response to stress. Lower cortisol levels after oxytocin exposure indicate that oxytocin may also function to diminish anxiety" - See Oxy Pro (Oxytocin) Nasal Spray at International Anti-aging Systems.
  • Oxytocin blunts social vigilance in the rhesus macaque - Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2013 Jun 24 - "Exogenous application of the neuromodulatory hormone oxytocin (OT) promotes prosocial behavior and can improve social function ... in the absence of competing task demands or goals, OT increased attention to faces and eyes, as in humans. By contrast, OT reduced species typical social vigilance for unfamiliar, dominant, and emotional faces in two additional tasks. OT eliminated the emergence of a typical state of vigilance when dominant face images were available during a social image choice task. Moreover, OT improved performance on a reward-guided saccade task, despite salient social distractors: OT reduced the interference of unfamiliar faces, particularly emotional ones, when these faces were task irrelevant. Together, these results demonstrate that OT suppresses vigilance toward potential social threats in the rhesus macaque" - See Oxytocin 24 x 20iu sublingual Troches at International Anti-aging Systems and Oxytocin Factor.
