Abstract

We have detected coding errors in the meta-analysis of Hofmann et al. (2015) who investigated the effect of intranasal oxytocin on psychiatric symptoms. We demonstrate that, after correcting these errors and reanalysing the data, the main conclusions of Hofmann et al. (2015) are no longer supported.
