This research has been generously funded by MindCare New Brunswick and the Human Early Learning Partnership at the University of British Columbia. We have been fortunate to have colleagues like Elizabeth Susman at the Pennsylvania State University, Joanne Weinberg in Anatomy at UBC, and Katherine Wynne-Edwards, Veterinary Science, University of Calgary, for authoritative consultations when our expertise fails us.
