Primate Neuroethology

Dario Maestripieri

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews current knowledge of the neurobiological regulation of affiliative, aggressive, sexual, and parental behavior in nonhuman primates. It focuses on social behavior expressed in the context of interactions between two or more individuals. It begins by reviewing research on the neurochemical control of primate social behavior, particularly studies of endogenous opioids, oxytocin and vasopressin, and the brain monoamine systems. It then considers the results of brain lesion studies investigating the neural substrates of primate social behavior. The chapter concludes by summarizing the main trends emerging from this literature review, and by discussing future research directions.

Keywords:   primates, social behavior, neurobiological regulation, brain lesion studies
