Extrafoveal preview benefit during free-viewing visual search in the monkey.
Previous studies have shown that subjects require less time to process a stimulus at the fovea after a saccade if they have viewed the same stimulus in the periphery immediately prior to the saccade. This extrafoveal preview ...
Rhesus macaque IFITM3 gene polymorphisms and SIV infection
nterferon-induced transmembrane proteins (IFITMs) have been recognized as important antiviral effectors of the innate immune system, both in cell culture and in infected humans. In particular, polymorphisms of the human ...
Meerkat close calling patterns are linked to sex, social category, season and wind, but not fecal glucocorticoid metabolite concentrations
It is well established that animal vocalizations can encode information regarding a sender’s identity, sex, age, body size, social rank and group membership. However, the association between physiological parameters, ...
Effects of attention on the processing of motion in macaque middle temporal and medial superior temporal visual cortical areas.
Does the Stimulus Type Influence Horses’ Performance in a Quantity Discrimination Task?
The ability to understand the relation between quantities has been documented in a wide range of species. Such quantity discrimination competences are commonly demonstrated by a choice of the larger quantity or numerosity ...
Territorial Polemics: A Response to Roberts
(Springer US, 2012)
Our recent paper Lledo-Ferrer et al. (International Journal of Primatology 32: 974–991, 2011) questioned the classic view of territoriality and chemical communication in wild callitrichids, saddleback tamarins (Saguinus ...
A comparative analysis of Y chromosome and mtDNA phylogenies of the Hylobates gibbons.
BACKGROUND: The evolutionary relationships of closely related species have long been of interest to biologists since these species experienced different evolutionary processes in a relatively short period of time. Comparison ...
Replacement of connexin43 by connexin26 in transgenic mice leads to dysfunctional reproductive organs and slowed ventricular conduction in the heart
Background: In order to further distinguish unique from general functions of connexin43, we have generated mice in which the coding region of connexin43 was replaced by that of connexin26.Results: Heterozygous mothers ...
Molecular phylogeny and taxonomic revision of the sportive lemurs (Lepilemur, Primates)
Background: The number of species within the Malagasy genus Lepilemur and their phylogenetic relationships is disputed and controversial. In order to establish their evolutionary relationships, a comparative cytogenetic ...
Small-scale coexistence of two mouse lemur species (Microcebus berthae and M. murinus) within a homogeneous competitive environment
Understanding the co-occurrence of ecologically similar species remains a puzzling issue in community ecology. The species-rich mouse lemurs (Microcebus spec.) are distributed over nearly all remaining forest areas of ...
