This paper extends previous work relating oxytocin levels to
parenting in humans and shows that individual differences in parenting are
partly attributable to polymorphisms in two oxytocin-related genes: 1) the
oxytocin receptor gene (OXTR); and 2) the gene for an enzyme that promotes
oxytocin release from hypothalamic neurons (CD38).
