     This symposium will focus on the behavioral, evolutionary, psychological, and physiological processes associated with the formation and maintenance of social bonds in human and non-human primates. Talks will span primate taxa, including apes, humans, and monkeys; types of relationships including mother-infant and adult attachment relationships; and scientific disciplines with both anthropologists and psychologists represented. Finally, both lab and fieldwork on the topic will be presented as well as some of the newest and most exciting findings in the area of primate social relationships.
