New York Academy of Sciences, 1992 - Medical - 492 pages
This volume presents the proceedings of a New York Academy of Sciences conference held in May 1991. It focuses on the CNS oxytocin systems in maternal, sexual and social behaviours as both an intitial activator of those behaviours and a determinant of the duration, sequencing and pacing of sexual and mother-infant interactions which are critical for fertilisation and for successful nurturing of offspring.
