Oxytocin messages via the cerebrospinal fluid: behavioral effects; a review
J.G. Veening, T. de Jong, H.P. Barendregt
Physiology & Behavior, 2010, 101 (2), 193-210.
[Oxytocin is actively distributed over brain areas, independent from circulation via blood. This is done via fast axonal connections and via somewhat slower but lasting volume transmission from dendrites via the CSF. Sources: Paraventricular Hypothalamic Nucleus (PVH) and Supraoptic Nuclei (SON). Targets: behavioural column, paracrine core, cortex, olfactory bulb, nose lymphatics. Effects: social, sexual, parental, feeding, and grooming behaviour; pain control.]
