Activity-dependent regulation of MHC class I expression in the developing primary visual cortex of the common marmoset monkey
Abstract Background Several recent studies have highlighted the important role of immunity-related molecules in synaptic plasticity processes in the developing and adult mammalian brains. It has been suggested that neuronal ...
Agent-mediated spatial storage effect in heterogeneous habitat stabilizes competitive mouse lemur coexistence in Menabe Central, Western Madagascar
Abstract Background Spatio-temporal distribution patterns of species in response to natural and anthropogenic drivers provide insight into the ecological processes that determine community composition. We investigated ...
Does habitat disturbance affect stress, body condition and parasitism in two sympatric lemurs?
Understanding how animals react to human-induced changes in their environment is a key question in conservation biology. Owing to their potential correlation with fitness, several physiological parameters are commonly used ...
Mitogenomic phylogeny of the common long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis fascicularis)
Abstract Background Long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis) are an important model species in biomedical research and reliable knowledge about their evolutionary history is essential for biomedical inferences. Ten ...
Determinants of immigration strategies in male crested macaques (Macaca nigra).
Immigration into a new group can produce substantial costs due to resistance from residents, but also reproductive benefits. Whether or not individuals base their immigration strategy on prospective cost-benefit ratios ...
Locomotor play drives motor skill acquisition at the expense of growth: A life history trade-off
The developmental costs and benefits of early locomotor play are a puzzling topic in biology, psychology, and health sciences. Evolutionary theory predicts that energy-intensive behavior such as play can only evolve ...
Concealed Fertility and Extended Female Sexuality in a Non-Human Primate (Macaca assamensis)
In numerous primates living in mixed-sex groups, females display probabilistic cues of fertility to simultaneously concentrate paternity to dominant males while diluting it amongst others as a means to reduce the risk of ...
Transmission Characteristics of Primate Vocalizations: Implications for Acoustic Analyses
Acoustic analyses have become a staple method in field studies of animal vocal communication, with nearly all investigations using computer-based approaches to extract specific features from sounds. Various algorithms can ...
Grafting of Neonatal marmoset monkey testicular single-cell suspensions into immunodeficient mice leads to ex situ testicular cord neomorphogenesis.
Single-cell suspensions derived from immature rodent and ungulate testes can reconstitute testicular cords upon grafting into immunodeficient mice. In the present study, neonatal common marmoset monkey (Callithrix jacchus) ...
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 ...
