We've completed our <a href="https://osf.io/td2mx/wiki/Literature%20Review/?view" rel="nofollow">literature review</a>, tested the procedure <a href="https://osf.io/m49gd/wiki/Merolla%20Replication%20Run-Through/" rel="nofollow">on ourselves</a>, completed <a href="https://osf.io/sp8cm/wiki/home/" rel="nofollow">ethical review</a>, and passed <a href="https://medium.com/citizen-science-belleville/citizen-science-registered-report-passes-peer-review-fde350b265bc" rel="nofollow">peer review</a> for publication as a <a href="http://rsos.royalsocietypublishing.org/registered-reports" rel="nofollow">registered report</a> (see <a href="https://osf.io/u9h7p/" rel="nofollow">manuscript</a>).

V., Ahmadi, S., & Zak, P. J. (2013). <a href="http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11109-012-9219-8" rel="nofollow">Oxytocin and the biological basis for interpersonal and political trust</a>. <em>Political Behavior, 35</em> (4), 753-776.</p> <p><strong>Target of replication.</strong> Oxytocin is a hormone naturally released by the brain in certain social environments. The original investigators conducted a double-blind experiment which found that the current political party structure of the United States aligns with differences in the ways oxytocin impacts a subject's trust in the government.</p> <p><strong>A priori replication criteria.</strong> A successful replication would find that intranasal administration of 40 IU of oxytocin significantly increases trust in the government for Democrats, but not for Republicans.</p>
