Abstract [en]

Findings suggest that intranasal administration of oxytocin improves emotion recognition. The brain mechanisms underlying these effects, however, are underexplored. A major caveat in this line of work is that it is almost exclusively based on young males, which limits current knowledge and potential for generalizability across gender and age. Adopting an adult developmental approach, the present research addresses this research gap by determining the effects of a single-dose intranasal oxytocin administration on recognition of positive and negative stimuli in younger and older men and women. Utilizing a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, within-subjects study design, 44 younger (mean age 25, 50% women) and 44 older (mean 70, 50% women) healthy adults participated in two fMRI sessions during which they viewed dynamic videoclips of positive and negative emotions displayed. Forty minutes before scanning, participants either self-administered 40 IUs of oxytocin or placebo.
