I've gone through almost everything available online and been hacking through some textbooks that I've...come across and frankly run into a bit of a wall.
Some literal ones in the form of paywalls to the really good research and some figurative ones in that I'm just way in over my head with a lot of this. A lot of it seems to be academic-speak for "fuck if we know."
A little knowledge sharing would be a great help right about now.
Why oxytocin specifically?
