A correlative study between behavioral, neurochemical and hormonal measures was conducted on male black tufted-ear marmoset monkeys (Callithrix penicillata). Behavioral analysis was performed in order to examine the effects of confrontation with a natural predator (taxidermized oncilla cat, Felis tigrina). The subjects were subjected to four trials without predator, six confrontation trials with predator present, and four trials with the predator removed.
