Neurobehavioral Plasticity: Learning, Development, and Response to Brain Insults

By Norman E. Spear; Linda P. Spear et al. | Go to book overview

the Center for Neurobiological Sciences at the University of Florida College of Medicine.

During the past 15 years, the center's research and animal care programs have expanded, with particular emphasis on the study of primates in medical research in part as a result of the Yerkes Center's collaboration with Emory's School of Medicine. Studies related to advancing the treatment of Parkinson's disease, AIDS, breast cancer, and eye disorders of children and adults coexist with behavioral studies on primate vocal communications, peacemaking, conflict resolution, reproduction, and infant development.

Today, the Yerkes Center is perhaps the most diverse of the primate research centers, with strong programs in social behavior as well as in several biomedical disciplines. This diversity represents the fulfillment of Dr. Yerkes' dream. I am pleased to have played a role in helping achieve his great vision for science and humanity.
