Some of Dan’s research on oxytocin:

Original study on oxytocin and trust:
Kosfeld, M., Heinrichs, M., Zak, P. J., Fischbacher, U., & Fehr, E. (2005). Oxytocin increases trust in humans. Nature, 435(7042), 673-676. https://www.nature.com/articles/nature03701

The rat pinch study:
Stock, S., & Uvnäs‐Moberg, K. (1988). Increased plasma levels of oxytocin in response to afferent electrical stimulation of the sciatic and vagal nerves and in response to touch and pinch in anaesthetized rats. Acta physiologica scandinavica, 132(1), 29-34.
