New study “Oxytocin receptor gene polymorphism (rs53576) and digit ratio associates with aggression: comparison in seven ethnic groups”
https://lnkd.in/d-gAprv
present the data on the role of cultural (ethnic-group), sex, and genetic factors in human aggression confirming the role of the #oxytocin OXTR #polymorphism in aggression on the individual level in adult representatives from industrial and traditional ethnic groups.

Oxytocin is a neuropeptide, produced by the hypothalamus and secreted by the pituitary gland. It has been frequently mentioned as an essential regulator of mother-child attachment, social affiliation, and #social bonding. Oxytocin’s secretion provides #anxietyrelief and #stressreduction , increases #empathy and trust, and positively affects generosity in the context of perspective-taking.
