Alu-minating the Mechanisms Underlying Primate Cortex Evolution.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Biological psychiatry [Biol Psychiatry] 2022 Nov 15; Vol. 92 (10), pp. 760-771. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 May 19.

Abstract: The higher-order cognitive functions observed in primates correlate with the evolutionary enhancement of cortical volume and folding, which in turn are driven by the primate-specific expansion of cellular diversity in the developing cortex. Underlying ...

Hand preferences in coordinated bimanual tasks in non-human primates: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Neuroscience and biobehavioral reviews [Neurosci Biobehav Rev] 2022 Oct; Vol. 141, pp. 104822. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Aug 09.

Abstract: The evolutionary significance of hand preferences among non-human primates and humans has been studied for decades with the aim of determining the origins of the population-level tendency. In this study, a meta-analysis was conducted to statistically i...

Do zoo-housed primates retreat from crowds? A simple study of five primate species.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): American journal of primatology [Am J Primatol] 2022 Oct; Vol. 84 (10), pp. e23386. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Apr 29.

Abstract: An animal's welfare state is directly influenced by the mental state, which is shaped by experiences within the environment throughout the animal's life. For zoo-housed animals, visitors to the zoo are a large part of that environment and a fluctuating...

Automated pose estimation in primates.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): American journal of primatology [Am J Primatol] 2022 Oct; Vol. 84 (10), pp. e23348. Date of Electronic Publication: 2021 Dec 02.

Abstract: Understanding the behavior of primates is important for primatology, for psychology, and for biology more broadly. It is also important for biomedicine, where primates are an important model organism, and whose behavior is often an important variable o...
