The ability of 4 squirrel monkeys to distinguish between members of 3 homologous series of substances (aliphatic alcohols, aldehydes, and ketones) was investigated, and their performance was compared with that of a group of 10 human participants. With all 3 substance classes, and in both species, a significant negative correlation was found between discrimination performance and structural similarity of odorants in terms of differences in carbon chain length. These findings suggest carbon chain… CONTINUE READING
