  • S. L. Manocha
Specialia

Summary

The physical growth and brain development of the captive bred male and female squirrel monkeys have shown that the male grows at a significantly faster rate with respect to these parameters in the postnatal life, starting from preweaning stage as compared to the female infant. During the prenatal life the male and the female fetuses grow at similar rates and show comparable brain development as indicated by its weight.
