|The Effect of Home-Cage Environment on the Social Dominance of Monkeys
|| R.W. Leary, R.J. Maroney
||Adolescent monkeys were tested in pairs on dominance in food-getting in the Wisconsin General Test Apparatus (WGTA). Then 1 monkey was placed in the home cage of another for 48 hrs. Dominance testing in the home cage and the WGTA during this period showed an increase in relative dominance of the hosts. This change was often maintained in WGTA tests a week later.
