Caption

Oxytocin neurotransmitter molecule. Computer model showing the structure of the neurotransmitter and hormone Oxytocin. Atoms are colour-coded (carbon: dark grey, hydrogen: light grey, oxygen: red, and nitrogen: blue). Oxytocin is released in large amounts in women during labour, and after stimulation of the nipples, facilitating birth and breastfeeding respectively. It also plays a role in sexual arousal, bonding, maternal behaviour, and general feelings of wellbeing.
