According to Karen Bales, ... [cached]

According to Karen Bales, psychology professor at the University of California, Davis, and associate editor of the American Journal of Primatology, this work is crucial for scientists who work with captive monkeys as it teaches them not only how the wild monkeys act, but also how to promote the welfare of captive monkeys. The findings provide information on the Titi monkey's natural habitat and enable scientists to better interpret their behavior, Bales said.

Bales said the study's findings are particularly divergent from her own results, which suggest that other animal species, including prairie wolves, have a high energy cost for infant care.

Emotional Health: The Darker Side of Oxytocin - The Doctor [cached]

Instead these males chose to associate with a strange female," said Dr. Karen Bales, Professor and Vice Chair of Psychology at the University of California, Davis, in a press release.

Some might say that this is typical behavior for a human male, but it's decidedly aberrant for a prairie vole, where males rarely look for a new partner even if their mate dies. And in one human study, oxytocin's short-term effect on men who already had a partner was to keep them further away than normal from strange women, not to encourage their advances.
If oxytocin's long-term effects are so different from its short-term impact, this poses great problems for its long-term use for any human condition. The findings suggest that oxytocin treatments caused long-term changes in the oxytocin system, according to Dr. Bales.

The researchers did not investigate typically developing children at the same time, which limits the interpretation of the findings, notes Karen Bales, professor of psychology at the University of California, Davis, who was not involved in the study. "We think it's good that we see more activity in these areas, but we don't really know [whether it's beneficial]," she says.
