This could be a good thesis paper for some lucky chump. As Oxytocin creates an approach emotion instead of just the "bonding" emotion. How about this idea: "Oxytocin as an approach emotion facilitator: creating both the bond of mother/newborn and the neurostimulated jealousy of both infant siblings and housepets".
Could oxytocin make people want to bond, and then cause the jealousy that little kids have for their parents attention when a new brother/sister is born?
Also could it be what causes sibling rivalries? kids vying for mom's attention, competing with each other based on hormonal cues that are taken differently with different contexts? The context being, oxytocin + Mom = bond with mom, oxytocin + mom + sibling = compete with sibling to bond with mom.
A few shots in the dark, I would call this a derivative or second derivitive in math terms. It isn't the amount of hormone the oxytocin creates in your body, but how it is compared to other hormones or external stimulation for a relative ratio contributing to a emotional physiological/effect.
