Such an assumption may be justified, as it is considered that vasotocin
in birds--an analogue of mammal vasopressin--participates in the regulation of the acoustic component of vocalization (Voorhuis et al., 1988), and the cerebral control of vocalization in animals and humans is supposed to share similarities (Bieser & Muller-Preuss, 1996; Gemba, Miki, & Sasaki, 1997).
