The Roles of Vasopressin and Oxytocin in Memory Processing reviews research progress in a subfield of Behavioral Pharmacology concerned with vasopressin's (VP's) and oxytocin (OT's) roles in memory processing (MP). As hormones, VP is well-known for its pressor and antidiuretic action, and OT for its contribution to parturition and nursing. As neurotransmitters, they participate in a wide variety of self- and species-preserving functions expressed at psychological, physiological and behavioral levels.

Historical survey of the major research on vasopressin’s (VP’s) and oxytocin’s (OT’s) effects on memory processing in appetitive, aversive and social memory situations, and the major theoretical accounts of these effects.Review:
"This book is really a must for all neurobiologists since it not only clarifies the reasons for the many controversies about the exact roles of vasopressin and oxytocin in memory processing, but it also provides those researchers who are interested in functionality as well as mechanisms a guide to avoid the dangers that are inherent to such research. Barbara McEwen's book comes at the right time since the current tendency favored by most granting institutions and amplified by the intrusion of news in science is to extrapolate from more or less sophisticated in vitro studies to in vivo functions in both normal and clinical conditions. In these times of sweeping generalizations, it is important to remember that results of any research carried out within the context of a given experimental paradigm are only valid for that particular paradigm. Barbara McEwen must be thanked for reiterating this lesson even though it took 654 pages and more than 1000 bibliographical references to do so!"
