I am proud to report that the special issue of the American Journal of Primatology on Oxytocin, Vasopressin, and Primate Behavior, which I co-guest edited with my postdoc advisor, Karen Bales, is now PUBLISHED!! It came out last month, and it is full of incredible new work, including many original scientific studies as well as some reviews and perspectives pieces. Check it out! There are nearly a dozen papers on these nonapeptides and how they function in the brains and bodies of primates to effect behavior.
For an overview of the contents, you can also read our brief introduction article, which was published along with the special issue:
Sara M Freeman and Karen L Bales. 2018. Oxytocin, vasopressin, and primate behavior: Diversity and insight. American Journal of Primatology. 10.1002/ajp.22919.
