Abstract:

* We show that intranasal oxytocin (OT) increases personal distance from strangers. * OT reverses the activity of the left dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (dmPFC). * Under OT we observed higher activation in the dmPFC when a friend is approaching. * The effect of OT on personal space depends on the protagonist.
