‘Love hormone’ oxytocin could provide new treatment for anorexia, study suggests
Oxytocin, also known as the ‘love hormone,’ could provide a new treatment for anorexia nervosa, according to new research. The study found that oxytocin alters anorexic patients’ tendencies to fixate on images of high calorie foods, and larger body shape. The findings follow an earlier study by the same group showing that oxytocin changed patients’ responses to angry and disgusted faces.
