Laboratory for Comparative Neurobiology of Monogamy

In the Bales lab, we use the comparative method to examine the endocrinology and neurobiology of social bonding.  We focus on two monogamous species, the prairie vole (Microtus ochrogaster) and the coppery titi monkey (Callicebus cupreus), while using polygynous species, such as rhesus macaques, as comparisons.  Please link below to descriptions of our projects.
