The Roles of Vasopressin and Oxytocin in Memory Processingreviews research progress in a subfield of Behavioral Pharmacology concerned with vasopressin's (VP's) and oxytocin (OT's) roles in memory processing (MP). As hormones, VP is well-known for its pressor and antidiuretic action, and OT for its contribution to parturition and nursing. As neurotransmitters, they participate in a wide variety of self- and species-preserving functions expressed at psychological, physiological and behavioral levels.
