Influence of Social Variables on the Biobehavioral Response to Separation in Rhesus Monkey Infants.
Levine, Seymour; And Others
Child Development, v55 n4 p1386-93 Aug 1984
Four-month-old rhesus monkeys were removed from their social group under three different conditions of perceptual isolation from their mothers and peers. Infant behavior was recorded and blood samples were obtained for analysis of plasma cortisol. Infants never showed signs of depression; their responses following separation were seen as attempts at coping. (RH)
