Yumi Yamanashi

Specially Appointed Researcher, Wildlife Research Center of Kyoto University

My academic interest lies in animal welfare and behavioral development in animals. I have been mainly studying chimpanzees and other primates using behavioral and endocrinological measures. My current research topics include primate sociality and its relationship with stress responses, non-invasive methods to quantify stress level of captive animals, and the process of behavioral acquisition in captive animals.
