Many captive great apes show gross behavioral abnormalities such as stereotypies, self-mutilation, inappropriate aggression, fear or withdrawal, which impede attempts to integrate these animals in existing or new social groups. These abnormal behaviors resemble symptoms associated with psychiatric disorders in humans such as depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Due to the outstanding importance of social interaction and the prolonged period of… Expand
Signs of generalized anxiety and compulsive disorders in chimpanzees
Abstract Fear and anxiety have been studied extensively in humans and other animals. However, far less attention has been focused on the clinical and ethical implications of nonhuman animals'Expand
Signs of Mood and Anxiety Disorders in Chimpanzees
TLDR
Chimpanzees display behavioral clusters similar to PTSD and depression in their key diagnostic criteria, underscoring the importance of ethical considerations regarding the use of chimpanzees in experimentation and other captive settings. Expand

REVIEW: PSYCHOPATHOLOGIES IN CAPTIVE NONHUMAN PRIMATES AND APPROACHES TO DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
TLDR
This review aims to raise awareness among the veterinary community of the wealth of literature on NHP psychopathologies in human medicine and anthropology literature and calls for the necessity to include mental health assessments and professionally structured treatment approaches in NHP medicine. Expand
Building an Inner Sanctuary: Complex PTSD in Chimpanzees
TLDR
Analysis of case studies of chimpanzees in residence at a sanctuary concludes that a diagnosis of Complex PTSD in chimpanzees is consistent with descriptions of trauma-induced symptoms as described by the DSM-IV and human trauma research. Expand

TLDR
In order to sustainably address the symptoms of psychopathologies, therapeutic approaches must be based on a structured, comprehensive diagnostic procedure, including behavioral and functional analyses, research into life history, and personality assessment. Expand
Behavioural Profiles in Captive-Bred Cynomolgus Macaques: Towards Monkey Models of Mental Disorders?
TLDR
It is suggested that animals from the low n groups (D and E) present depressive-like and anxious-like symptoms, reminiscent of depressive and generalized anxiety disorders, and the use of unbiased behavioural observations might allow the identification of animal models of human mental/behavioural disorders and their most appropriate control groups. Expand
Psychological Distress in Chimpanzees Rescued From Laboratories
TLDR
This analysis qualitatively analyzed symptoms of psychological distress in a sample of 253 chimpanzees rescued from biomedical research now residing at an accredited chimpanzee sanctuary and includes an illustrative case study of one rescued chimpanzee who engages in self-injurious behaviors and meets modified Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, criteria for posttraumatic stress disorder.

A biocultural approach to psychiatric illnesses
TLDR
Research agendas that are grounded in an appreciation of biocultural diversity as it relates to psychiatric illness represent key areas for truly interdisciplinary research that can result in culturally sensitive treatments and highlight possible biological variation affecting medical treatment.

Toward an Integration of Interpersonal and Biological Processes: Evolutionary Psychiatry as an Empirically Testable Framework for Psychiatric Research
TLDR
Empirical psychiatry is proposed as a meta-theory to integrate biological and interpersonal aspects of psychopathology to provide a functional classification which adds to the contemporary psychiatric nosology through analysis according to specific conflicts of adaptation, the pursuit of biosocial goals, and proximate specifiers such as genetic, developmental, and interpersonal causes of disorders.

TLDR
The association of some abnormal behaviors with mother‐rearing suggests that some form of social learning may be involved in the origin of some of these behavior patterns. Expand
Stereotypy in monkeys and humans.
TLDR
If stereotypy is regarded as a consequence of failure to use sensory input to direct behaviour, therapeutic regimes designed to stimulate responsive behaviours and social interactions are more likely to be effective in the long run than direct attempts to suppress stereotypy. Expand
