Article
Dopamine (DA) is a critical neuromodulator of behavior. With propensities for addiction, hyper-activity, cognitive impairment, aggression, and social subordinance, monkeys enduring early maternal deprivation evoke human disorders involving dopaminergic dysfunction. To examine whether DA system alterations shape the behavioral correlates of adverse...

Studies of human neuroanatomy have advanced from the pseudoscience of phrenology, to the localization of functions with ablation research, and recently culminated in studies of brain wiring or the “connectome”. Future innovations in brain science depend on some departure from the typical laser focus on disease models, and the adoption of holistic a...
Article
The concept of “non-disposable assignments” (NDAs), including those referred to as “renewable assignments,” has grown in popularity in recent years in select education circles, particularly alongside an enthusiastic push toward open pedagogy. Unfortunately, little organized literature exists to effectively define, implement, and empirically evaluat...

The behavioral consequences of early maternal deprivation often evoke human psychopathologies and dementias involving a defective neurotransmission of dopamine. Therefore, we investigated the impact of maternal deprivation on brain dopaminergic pathways during three multidisciplinary and comparative studies of nursery/peer-reared (NR, n=6) and moth...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter explains why the loss and recovery of trauma memory is considered to be controversial. It also explores the historical themes that maintain or exacerbate the controversy. Consensus papers have appeared in scientific journals, at times written jointly by clinical researchers and non-clinical cognitive researchers. The chapter emphasizes...

Introduction The US Federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act defines child abuse and neglect as the recent act or failure of parents and caretakers resulting in physical or emotional injury, sexual exploitation, and/or death. According to national statistics on the prevalence of childhood abuse and neglect in the United States, 905,000 peop...
Article
Potential interactions between age and endocrinological functioning have been understudied in wild ape populations. Therefore, we examined the relationship between age and the secretion of androgens and glucocorticoids in 15 juvenile, subadult, and adult male chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) free ranging in the Budongo Forest of Uganda....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this first behavioural endocrinology study of a primate from Uganda’s Budongo Forest the effects of social dominance, age, injury, illness and one seasonal factor ( i.e. force temperature) upon androgen (testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate) and glucocorticoid (corticosterone and cortisol) production were examined in 15 male chimpanze...
Article
Full-text available
Anogenital licking (AGL), which serves multiple endocrine and neural functions during the sensitive periods of development in rat infants, is directed preferentially to males. Moore and Samonte (1986) established that scents from the preputial gland of pups underlie the preferential sniffing of male-perineal odors and hypothesized that these glands...

Question
In the cognitive science and behavioral economics literature the terms are often confused/conflated. Is it fair to say that Heuristics are mental shortcuts and biases refer to the various ways in which these mental shortcuts lead to error?

To building bridges of understanding between the legal disciplines and neuroscience through translation and application of principles derived from cognitive, affective and developmental neurobiology research.
Project
Through a series of behavioral endocrine, psychopharmacological and receptor studies, we are elucidating the impact of maternal- versus peer-rearing on brain dopaminergic functioning in rhesus monkeys.
