The growing independence of infant common marmosets from their caregivers is promoted primarily by their caregivers, who increasingly often prevent the infants from climbing onto them and decreasingly often pick the infants up. Infants achieve independence from their mothers, fathers, and older siblings at different rates and develop characteristically(More)
The effects of separating 4-week-old twin marmosets for 8 days from their families are compared with the effects of leaving 4-week-old infants with their families, but reducing the responsiveness of their caregivers for 8 days by administration of the tranquilizer fluphenazine decanoate. Both treatments reduce infant mobility, abolish play, and increase the(More)
The effects of injecting a low dose of the neuroleptic fluphenazine decanoate (MODECATE) on the responsiveness of family members (fathers and siblings) to infant common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus ) are described. Tentative conclusions are that the overall effect of the injection is to make fathers and siblings more 'passive' and unresponsive, though the(More)
The effect of the timing of a standard meal relative to a single oral dose of 200 mg ibopamine, on the appearance of its pharmacologically active metabolite, epinine, in plasma was investigated in a randomised crossover study in 12 healthy volunteers. After a 12 h fast, ibopamine was administered either in the fasting state (no meal), or 1 h before, 0.5 h(More)
Infant sensorimotor and social skills, playfulness, and nonplayful behaviors were measured in common marmosets from 6 to 22 weeks old. Different measures of skill showed a low concordance, implying that skill is a multiple rather than unitary attribute. Significant correlations were found between the amount of social play infants performed from 11 to 13(More)
Interactions between common marmoset infants (Callithrix jacchus) and their fathers, mothers, older siblings and twins were examined in captive family groups. The aim was to record infants' behaviour after being rejected in their attempts to get on to caregivers and after being rubbed off by caregivers who had been carrying them. The results showed that(More)
Eight healthy volunteers participated in an open crossover study to assess the effect of a standardised meal on the systemic availability of a single oral dose of fenoldopam mesylate 100 mg. Subjects were studied on four separate occasions, twice fasting and twice fed in randomised, balanced order. Plasma and urine samples were obtained before and at(More)
