Abstract

The underlying mechanism of oxytocin (OT) neurons in the development of social interaction remains unclear. In a recent study, Lewis et al. characterized OT neuronal subtypes and provided evidence that expression of the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) gene Fmr1 in parvocellular OT neurons is essential for peer–peer but not filial social interactions.
