Title:
Oxytocin levels in saliva correlate better than plasma levels with concentrations in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients in neurocritical care. 
Abstract:
In the converging fields of neuroendocrinology and behavioural neuroscience, the interaction between peripheral secretion and central release of oxytocin in humans has not yet been comprehensively assessed. As the human brain is not directly accessible and as the collection of human cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) usually requires invasive procedures, easier accessible compartments such as blood or saliva attract increasing attention. In this study, we prospectively determined oxytocin concentrations...    »
