Natalie Zimmerman (MRes) Proximate mechanisms for sibling recognition

My research investigates the factors that influence sibling relationships. At the moment, I am investigating the role of breastfeeding as a proximate mechanism for the effects of maternal-perinatal association on sibling relationships. I was supervised by Dr Lisa DeBruine and completed my MRes in 2012.
