Oxytocin improves trust in humans!

Oxytocin is a hormone which has been shown to encourage animals and also humans to engage in affiliation for the purpose of their safety instead of avoiding interactions. In recent research Oxytocin  has been found to be associated with trust in humans whereby higher levels of this hormone could increase trust. Trust plays a key role for couples in relationships, friendships, families and also at the political and the economical level (Kosfeld et al., 2005). More research is under way to assess the other potential benefits of oxytocin and whether administrating this hormone to humans has potential benefits.
