Reared rhesus monkeys in complete social isolation (Exp I), in a group of peers (Exp II), or with their mother in natural groups of monkeys (Exp III). When Ss were 8-mo-old, separation experiments were conducted by removing the rearing cage, peers, or mother with respect to the rearing condition. Separation caused a significant increase in infant vocalizations, locomotive behavior, self-oriented behavior, and a significant decrease in environment-oriented behavior.
