Animal Models in Developmental Psychobiology

  • I. Charles Kaufman
Part of the Topics in Developmental Psychobiology book series (TDP)


The topic of this workshop has more than a passing interest to me since I am personally responsible for one fairly common animal model—separation of the monkey infant from its mother, but not from its home or other social companions. I think it might serve the purpose of this symposium if I were to discuss some questions about the use of that model.
