Developmental and Comparative Cognition

Researchers in the Emory National Primate Research Center Division of Developmental and Cognitive Neuroscience examine genetic, biological and environmental factors that regulate social behavior and cognition, and they study how social experience affects physiological processes and brain function. The researchers' studies focus on a variety of topics based on the social structure of primate society, including affiliation, aggression, communication, reproduction, maternal behavior, growth, learning/memory and language development.
