AVP and male animal aggression Initial studies in male hamsters reported that V1a antagonist administration into the anterior hypothalamus inhibits aggression , results which have since been confirmed in several other labs [ - ]. The female prairie vole, noted for her cuddling and affectionate grooming tendencies toward her chosen mate, when given an extra dose of oxytocin, increased her affections and stuck even tighter with her partner. It is beyond the scope of this review to present non-immune effects of these mediators. Vasopressin helps regulate water and solute concentrations, while oxytocin plays a role in certain reproductive processes. Prevention of body fluid loss is regulated by reabsorption of water in the kidney. Central AVP activity may be a worthwhile target for gender specific treatments aimed at improving human pair bonds.
This increase in OXT may be in response to the conflict and not a causal factor. Once again, like for the V1A, there are important differences between species in the pharmacology of the V1B. Changes in the brains of autistic children have been observed in children as young as 6 months [ ]. Corticotrophin releasing hormone plays an important function in acute phase response, whereas vasopressin supports the acute phase response, but it is really the hypothalamic regulator of healing and of physiological immune regulation. If the role of AVP in memory is substantial in human females, it is possible that depression and anxiety treatments targeted at antagonizing central AVP may impair memory processes.
Neuron-glia interactions in the rat supraoptic nucleus. AVP Advances in vasopressin and oxytocin book primarily synthesized in the magnocellular neurons of the hypothalamic supraoptic nucleus, and in magnocellular and parvocellular neurons of the paraventricular and suprachismatic nuclei of the hypothalamus. In male rats bred for high levels of anxiety, AVP level and release from the PVN are elevated when compared to low anxiety males [ - ] and the differential expression of AVP in rats selected for high anxiety has been linked to specific single nucleotide polymorphisms . AVP and female animal models of depression and anxiety Many of the mechanistic studies of AVP and depression and anxiety have focused on males, and there is a need for more detailed studies in both nulliparous and pregnant and maternal females. Further work in hamsters has revealed that an orally active V1a antagonist decreases aggression in male hamsters, but does not affect social investigation or sexual motivation [ ]. Scientists studied the prairie volewhich is known to be monogamous and to express vasopressin like humans.

A loving marital union exemplifies such behavior in that it provides a stable, permanent context for intimacy. AVP and male animal aggression Initial studies in male hamsters reported that V1a antagonist administration Advances in vasopressin and oxytocin book the anterior hypothalamus inhibits aggression , results which have since been confirmed in several other labs [ - ].
It then travels down the axon through the infundibulum Advances in vasopressin and oxytocin book neurosecretory granules that are found within Herring bodies, localized swellings of the axons and nerve terminals. However, studies of V1a and V1b KO mice have had mixed results, with some reporting impaired social recognition [ 24] and others failing to find impairments [ ].
Studies of social recognition and memory in male mice, processes important for the establishment of affiliative behavior, conclude that OXT actions on social behavior are mediated by changes in recognition and social memory [ 67 ].
It is postulated that impairments in maternal care following gestational stress may be mediated by decreases in central OXT activity. Testosterone is the sex hormone in both male and females, which is what gives us libido and sex drive. In contrast, OXT is positively correlated with interpersonal conflict , but the relevance of these changes in OXT is debated [ ].
It is concluded that OXT is an important mediator of the formation and maintenance of the family unit. AVP and CRH corticoptropin-releasing hormone activate the HPA hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal gland axis playing a principal role in stress and immune response [ 73 ].
How can an individual go about safely improving his or her sex life though? OXT and female humandepression and anxiety Although plasma OXT is difficult to measure and has a high degree of variability, reduced plasma OXT has been documented in both males and females suffering from depression [ ].
The V2 receptor is exclusively expressed in the principal cells of the renal collecting duct, being responsible for the antidiuretic effect of AVP, but the existence of an extra-renal V2 receptor has been proposed [ 2549 ]. More work is required to appreciate fully the value of oxytocin in immune function.
Only the side-chain of residue 8 of the peptides is pointing towards the extracellular loops of the receptors and is potentially less constrained than all other parts of the ligands [ 13 ].
Normal affiliative expression is especially impaired in autistic males, and some Advances in vasopressin and oxytocin book males have deficits in OXT receptor expression [ 8081 ]. Translation from animals to humans One explanation for these effects is that high levels of early life discipline have developmental effects on central OXT circuits which make these individuals less responsive to exogenous OXT.
These researchers observed the effects of oxytocin, and another endogenous chemical known as vasopressin.
Over-expression of V1a receptors in the forebrain of male prairie voles Advances in vasopressin and oxytocin book pair bonding [ ], and V1a antagonist injection into specific brain regions inhibit pair bond formation . Selective V1A agonists and antagonists have been described [ Advances in vasopressin and oxytocin book ].
A single dose of OXT can specifically impair memory retention [ 26 ], and further study indicates that exogenous OXT inhibits cholinergic mechanisms that are necessary for memory retention [ 27 ].
The hydrophobic part of the ligands dives deeply into the binding cavity for interacting with hydrophobic residue clusters, whereas the more hydrophilic part of the peptides bind to the transmembrane edge. OXT and male human learning and memory Intranasal OXT facilitates socially reinforced learning and emotional empathy in men [ 98 ], consistent with the data from animal models and the initial studies of the effects of OXT in autistic patients.
Altogether, these results point to a multistate model of receptor activation in which ligand-specific conformations are capable of differentially activate distinct signaling partners. During stimulation, researchers noted higher levels of oxytocin. Female V1b knockout mice do not display the Bruce effect, where a previously mated female will block the implantation of fertilized eggs if exposed to an unfamiliar male after mating [ ].
For male animals, there is evidence to support the hypothesis that depression and anxiety related behaviors are associated with elevated AVP activity in both brain and plasma.The oxytocin antagonist prevented pair bonding, though it did not interfere with mating In males, vasopressin was found to play the key role in pair-bonding.
When additional vasopressin was administered to male prairie voles, their normal behavior of mate guarding was amplified into aggressive snarling behavior to other passerby males. Vasopressin and Oxytocin Receptors The pituitary hormones arginine vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OT) are structurally related cyclic nonapeptides that act as hormones and neurotransmitters.
Both peptides are synthesized in neurons in the hypothalamus that project to the posterior pituitary from which they are released into the circulation.
