So recently I went to neuroscience conference and one of the lectures given was by Dr. Larry J. Young.

His research has suggested that increasing Oxytocin levels for autistics could enhance their
social receptiveness and learning. However long term treatment and side effects of long term treatment
if combined with behavioral therapy is still unknown. Anyways, to the point- what do you think
of something like this. As far as changing brain chemistry with Oxytocin and Vasopressin levels
for a more comfortable social conformity?

“Living backwards!” Alice repeated in great
astonishment. “I never heard of such a thing!”
“—but there’s one great advantage in it, that one’s
memory works both ways.”
