  1. 1. Training of spider monkeys in a food-rewarded two-choice olfactory discrimination paradigm and assessment of olfactory learning and memory performance

    Master-uppsats, Linköpings universitet/Biologi

    Författare :Emmi Aineslahti; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Ateles geoffroyi; behavioral testing; discrimination learning; odor memory; olfaction; olfactory discrimination; olfactory learning; spider monkey;

    Sammanfattning : There is little knowledge about olfactory learning in primates, even though primates are known to use olfaction in several behaviors including food selection and territorial defense. Therefore I assessed the olfactory learning and memory performance in five adult spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi) using a food-rewarded two-choice olfactory discrimination paradigm. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Ateles

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Steneby - Institutionen för Konsthantverk och Design

    Författare :Eleonora Bergström; [2012-10-04]
    Nyckelord :Textil; Kläder; Formgivning;

    Sammanfattning : Mitt arbete handlar om att smycka kroppen utifrån ett skulpturallt perspektiv med inspiration från mina teckningar. Titeln Ateles är ett grekiskt ord och betyder utan slut. Med detta ord syftar jag på mitt sätt, metod och känsla jag har inför arbetet och det jag skapar. Ett växande utan slut. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Olfactory sensitivity of spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi) for "green odors"

    Master-uppsats, Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Författare :Pia Katrine Løtvedt; [2011]
    Nyckelord :Ateles geoffroyi; green odors ; olfaction; olfactory detection thresholds; spider monkeys;

    Sammanfattning : Primates have traditionally been viewed as having a poorly developed sense of smell. However, in recent years, studies have shown that at least some primate species use olfaction in a number of behaviors, and that they have a high olfactory sensitivity for various chemical classes of odorants.

  4. 4. Zero-order manipulation task to obtain a food reward in Colombian black spider monkeys (Ateles fusciceps rufiventris) kept in a zoo

    Master-uppsats, Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Författare :Sofia Högberg; [2010]
    Nyckelord :behavior; captivity; cognition; enrichment; tool use; welfare;

    Sammanfattning : Spider monkeys (Ateles sp.) are common in zoological parks, but rare in scientific publications. Studies on tool use in primates have mostly focused on impressive tool users such as chimpanzees. Spider monkeys fulfill several criteria that are known to be associated with tool use. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Olfactory sensitivity of spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi) for six structurally related aromatic aldehydes

    Master-uppsats, Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Författare :Luna Kjelmand; [2009]
    Nyckelord :Aromatic aldehydes; olfactory detection thresholds; spider monkeys;

    Sammanfattning : For many years, primates have been considered to be animals with a poorly developed sense of smell. However, in recent years several studies have shown that at least some primate species have a high olfactory sensitivity for a variety of odorants. LÄS MER
