Social isolation and other behavioral changes in groups of adult vervet monkeys cercopithecus aethiops produced by low nonchronic doses of dextro amphetamine

, : Social isolation and other behavioral changes in groups of adult vervet monkeys cercopithecus aethiops produced by low nonchronic doses of dextro amphetamine. Psychopharmacology 64(3): 297-302

Doses (0.1-0.7 mg/kg body wt) of d-amphetamine were administered to 3 independent groups of green vervet monkeys (C. aethiops). Each group formed a triad with 1 male and 2 females. Amphetamine changed both the individual and the social behavior patterns significantly. Stereotypy and social isolation (withdrawal) were characteristic features of the amphetaminized animals. Stereotyped social grooming was seen. The results are discussed in relation to behavior changes seen in amphetamine psychoses and in naturally occurring endogenous psychoses. The study of behavior patterns is an important object of research and a relevant line in future investigations on psychopathology.
