Oxytocin Solidifies Relationships, Studies Show

The oxytocin response can also prime the brain to react more calmly to future stress just by thinking of those we love, scientists say.

Scientists are still figuring that out, though oxytocin seems to combine with other chemicals and situations to bring on the zzzz’s more quickly.

Assessing the influence of oxytocin on the sleep pattern of male rats, German researchers from the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry reported that oxytocin released in the brain under stress-free conditions naturally promotes sleep. Their study, published in July 2003 in the journal Regulatory Peptides, used an oxytocin “agonist” – a drug that binds to cells to produce a certain response – to determine that natural oxytocin produced in the brain brings on sleep.
