Social Preferences by and for Pigtailed Macaques (Macaca Nemestrina) with Trisomy 18.
Swartz, Karyl B.; Sackett, Gene P.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v99 n2 p141-50 Sep 1994
Comparison of social choices of trisomic macaques and of control groups found that groups showed few differences in preferences for stimulus animals with and without disabilities. Results suggest that the avoidance of individuals with disabilities is not a general primate trait and the presence of mental retardation and physical handicaps need not reduce positive social motivation.
