Abstract : This paper will summarize the results of some recent investigations in the area of emotional responsiveness of rhesus monkeys to psychological stress. The similarity between this data and that obtained in recent work with humans under stress has led to an examination of the significant variables accounting for the data, and to a proposal for a multidisciplinary research approach in this area.
