I’ve met many people in my life, and sadly I do not remember all of their names. In fact, I’m fairly awful at face/name recognition. I’ve noticed, too, that certain people whom I’ve met many times over can’t seem to remember my name, either. Those of us with this embarrassing social memory problem may benefit from a new hormone-based drug called Oxytocin. Calm down, it’s not Oxycontin, it’s Oxytocin. From the LA Times article:
As the hormone is destroyed in the GI tract, the only viable delivery methods are nasal spray and injection. It sounds as if the effects are fairly short lived, and since this seems to be something you’d want to do just before a party, I’d suggest the nasal spray over injection. Again, I’m speaking of the hormone, Oxytocin, not the widely abused painkiller, Oxycontin!
