Sapolsky's Why Zebra’s Don’t Get Ulcers: a charming tour of stress science
Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers, by Robert M Sapolsky, 406
406 (3rd ed edition)
The full quote/excerpt
Take a rodent or a primate that has been housed alone and put it into a social group. The typical result is a massive stress-response. In the case of monkeys, this can go on for weeks or months while they tensely go about figuring out who dominates whom in the group’s social hierarchy.
