We examined the effects of gender, age, weight, length, body shape (ectomorphy), and matrilineal influences on cisternal cerebrospinal fluid 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (CSF 5-HIAA) and homovanillic acid (HVA) in 78 socially living adult and adolescent vervet monkeys. CSF 5-HIAA and the 5-HIAA:HVA ratio were higher (by 27% and 18%, respectively) in females. In both sexes, CSF 5-HIAA and the 5-HIAA:HVA ratio increased with age. Neither weight nor length were independently related to CSF 5-HIAA or… CONTINUE READING
