Background: Callithrix jacchus are small Neotropical primates, commonly known as common marmosets. The common marmoset occupies a distinctive phylogenetic position of an experimental model animal for neuroscience. Certain higher cognitive behaviors, and its associated brain disorders, may in some cases be more easily or accurately examined in a non-human primate than in rodent or other simple vertebrate animals. Marmoset will be useful as a non-human primate model to study the brain mechanisms of distinct higher cognitive behaviors and to serve as a bridge to translate knowledge from the preclinical studies using rodents to clinical studies.
