Abstract

The effect of oxytocin and lysine-8-vasopressin on step-down passive avoidance behavior has been studied in rats. Step-down latency was considerably shortened after treatment with oxytocin and lengthened by vasopressin. The data suggest an opposite action of oxytocin to vasopressin on step-down latency.
