Tracking oxytocin to understand the biological pathways linked to human cognition and behaviour

ANSTO is participating in a $1 million Australian Research Council project to understand how the hormone oxytocin may influence human cognition and behaviour and explain its potential usefulness as a treatment for autism and other disorders.

Life sciences researchers will apply ultra-sensitive imaging techniques using radio-labelling probes in combination with positron emission tomography (PET) to determine the pathway that oxytocin takes to reach receptors in the human brain. Read more.
