    Horm Behav 50:94-100. 2006
    ..Together, these results lend significant weight to the idea that decisions to help in cooperative vertebrates have a hormonal basis, although different hormones appear to be associated with different types of care...

    Andrew J Young
    Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 3EJ, UK
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:12005-10. 2006
    ..However, our findings raise the possibility that, in some cooperative breeders at least, dominants may employ stress-related suppression as a backup mechanism to guard against lapses in reproductive restraint by their subordinates...

    ..We conclude, however, that it will be important in all future studies to confine blood sampling times to 4-7 min after capture/administration of anesthesia to avoid the confounding effects of the stress response on prolactin levels...
