Oxytocin is a peptide hormone normally released by the hypothalamus in the brain. While usually given for its effects to induce labor or lactation, it also has effects on social bonding/behaviors, sexual arousal, and anxiety. It may be given to increase emotional bonding, achieve or enhance orgasm, and to help with certain behaviors in people with autism.
