Olfactory Cues Modify and Enhance Responses to Visual Cues in the Common Marmoset (Callithrix jacchus)

Diurnal primates are generally considered to have a poor sense of smell and a dearth of publications in primate olfaction has done little to correct this view. We know, however, that New World monkeys, such as the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus), have a well-developed olfactory system and display olfaction-based social behaviour. We have far less certainty as to the role of olfaction in predator- and food- based odours in Callithrichids, and indeed, in many other primate species. We also know very little about the relative importance of multi-modal cues (such as visual and olfactory stimuli combined).
