Yeah, finally – after several rounds of submissions and rejections and a year-long lasting and exhausting review process at Scientific Reports... – we are now happy to announce that our clinical trial “Randomized clinical trial shows no substantial modulation of empathy-related neural activation by intranasal oxytocin in autism.” is published. Main thanks go to Annalina V. Mayer who did a tremendous job in putting together all findings into one, very coherent manuscript. Also, many thanks to our collaborators in Marburg who were responsible for the data collection and recruitment of participants with a diagnosis of autism.
