BNA2021 supported session:
Social neuropeptides: central oxytocin and vasopressin pathways and translational implications​


The BAP is a learned society and registered charity. It promotes research and education in psychopharmacology and related areas, and brings together people in academia, health services, and industry. Formed in 1974, it is one of the largest such national associations in the world.  The BAP remit comprises two interlinked areas: 

  • The biological basis of brain and behaviour, and its alterations in psychiatric disorders.
  • The study of treatments for disorders of brain and behaviour: the targets, mechanisms of action, effectiveness, and side-effects of current and novel treatments and drugs of abuse.

The BAP is relevant to all psychiatrists, neuroscientists, pharmacologists, neurologists, pharmacists, and psychologists.
