Mother-offspring (MO) relationship quality was investigated to determine its influence on the development of reconciliation--affiliation between opponents shortly after a fight--because it influenceswhat distressed youngsters learn about calming down. Data were longitudinal and cross-sectional observational samples of 38 MO pairs of monkeys across 24 months. An MO relationship quality index (RQI) classified each pair as secure or insecure. Reconciliation emerged in infancy. Secure youngsters… Expand
An index of relationship quality based on attachment theory.
TLDR
A comparison revealed extensive behavioral differences between secure and insecure MO relationships and suggested MORQ provided an objective, continuous measure of attachment security. Expand
Sex differences in learning the allocation of social grooming in infant stumptailed macaques
Summary Among primates, the intense mother-infant bond provides offspring with a lengthy period for learning from an experienced and reliable demonstrator. Since adult life differs for females andExpand
Analysis of Post-agonism Reconciliation in a Captive Group of the Wedge-Capped Capuchin Monkey, Cebus olivaceus: a Pilot Study.
Agonism was often associated to an increase in inter-individual distances in social individuals; however, many evidences indicate that individuals affiliate after a dispute ( “reconciliate”). TheExpand
Response to social challenge in young bonnet (Macaca radiata) and pigtail (Macaca nemestrina) macaques is related to early maternal experiences
TLDR
Young monkeys with amicable and agonistic relationships showed consistent differences in behavior before, during, and after each social challenge, supporting the hypothesis that juveniles from amicable mother‐infant relationships based on the RQI coped more effectively with social challenges than did juveniles from agonistic mother‐ Infant relationships.

Behavioral response of a chimpanzee mother toward her dead infant
TLDR
The behavior of the mother toward her dead infant not only highlights the maternal contribution to the mother–infant relationship but also elucidates the opportunities chimpanzees have to learn about the sensory cues associated with death, and the implications of death for the social environment.

The Function and Determinants of Reconciliation in Pan troglodytes
Reconciliation (the postconflict affiliative reunion between former opponents) may mitigate costs of aggressive conflict by repairing the opponents’ relationship and reducing stress. We showed thatExpand
The Occurrence of Postconflict Skills in Captive Immature Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)
TLDR
The results provide evidence for postconflict skills in immature chimpanzees but the lack of higher conciliatory tendency with valuable partners and low occurrence of third-party affiliation indicates extended juvenility may be required to refine these skills. Expand
Individual differences in aggressive and peaceful behavior: new insights and future directions
Consistent individual differences in animal behaviour are an increasingly common focus of research across various behavioural and biological sciences. Such ‘animal personalities’ comprise a diverseExpand
Postconflict Behaviour in Brown Capuchin Monkeys (Cebus apella)
TLDR
Reconciliation was more likely to occur between opponents that supported each other more frequently and that spent more time together and none of the variables thought to measure relationship quality had a significant effect on postconflict stress. Expand

The hypothesis that kinship effects on reconciliation are stronger the more despotic the species is is confirmed, and differences in reconciliation frequency between kin and nonkin were less pronounced among the less despotic Barbary macaques. Expand
