Stumptailed monkeys were reared from 1 week after birth to 6 months of age in either a colony condition with the mother or in partial social isolation that allowed visual contact with the colony animals, but not physical contact. At 6 months of age the animals were killed and selected areas of the neocortex stained by the Golgi-Cox method. Relatively nonspiney cells of Layer IV were drawn and analyzed for complexity of dendritic branching. Isolation-reared animals had significantly decreased… CONTINUE READING
