Are subordinates always stressed? a comparative analysis of rank differences in cortisol levels among primates
Regulation of maternal behavior and offspring growth by paternally expressed Peg3.
This study provides further insights on the evolution of epigenetic regulation of imprinted gene dosage in modulating mammalian growth and behavior.

These results provide evidence for the involvement of an imprinted gene in the control of adult behaviour in Mest-deficient females, and show abnormal maternal behaviour and impaired placentophagia, a distinctive mammalian behaviour.

The significance of these coadaptive traits being synchronized in mother and offspring by the same paternally expressed imprinted gene ensures that offspring that have extracted ‘good’ maternal nurturing will themselves be both well provisioned and genetically predisposed towards ‘ good’ mothering.

The nature of stimulus access suggests that the VNO responds to nonvolatile cues, leading to activation of the hypothalamus by way of the accessory olfactory bulb and amygdala, which regulates reproductive, defensive, and ingestive behavior as well as neuroendocrine secretion.
