However, there's been an increasing interest in identifying other roles OT plays in emotion, cognition, perception and higher cognitive processing. OT is also believed o have a mayor role in the physiology and physiopathol-ogy of pain. We have reviewed existent literature and current human studies on the relationship between OT and chronic pain.
