  Monkeys: Biology, Behavior and Disorders
■ 概要
  Males take an active role in rearing infants among callitrichid species. Callitrichid species could be a suitable model for research on paternal behavior as well as maternal behavior and the relationship between parents and infants. In this review, we first survey developmental changes in the relationship between infants and parents. Next, we introduce experiments in which attachment behavior from infants to parents and from parents to infants was investigated and examine whether the behavior differs between fathers and mothers. In addition, we refer to a unique behavior of callitrichid species, namely, food transfer from parents to offspring. Finally, we examine how behavior can be controlled via endocrinological variables.
