    AGING MALE   9 ( 4 ) 207 - 213  2006.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Objective. We examined age associated variation in salivary testosterone values among Japanese males as well as anthropometric measurements.
    Methods. Salivary samples were collected in pretreated sodium azide treated tubes. The first series: 15-79-year-old males (n = 99); two morning and two evening samples were collected at home for two days. The second series: 90-year-old males (n=29); one morning sample was collected. Testosterone values were determined using an iodine 125-based radioimmunoassay kit modified for saliva.
    Results. Results show 1) a significant decrease in salivary testosterone values from 20s to 40s and older, 2) no significant decline after 40 through 90 years old, 3) no significant age-related differences in the degree of intraindividual diurnal fluctuation across age groups of 40-70s, and 4) higher BMI is associated with the lower salivary testosterone among 40-70s.
    Conclusions. These results suggest that neither a constant decrease of salivary testosterone values or markedly reduced intraindividual fluctations are universal aspects of aging. Older males may maintain relatively high testosterone levels compared to younger men and a relatively `robust' neuroendocrinological system.

  • Design of the mandibular molar in the extant great apes and Miocene fossil hominoids

    A Uchida

    ANTHROPOLOGICAL SCIENCE   106   119 - 126  1998  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The relative size of the cusps of the first mandibular molars of extant great apes and the Miocene hominoids, Proconsul and Sivapithecus were compared. As previously shown, molar morphology can differ between populations of the same species. Although the differences in crown size and shape are not as great as expected, each extant great ape species has a different overall design of the cusp base, probably reflecting its evolutionary history. The relative sizes of the cusps in Proconsul and Sivapithecus are different from those of any extant great apes.

  • Variation in tooth morphology of Gorilla gorilla

    A Uchida

    JOURNAL OF HUMAN EVOLUTION   34 ( 1 ) 55 - 70  1998.01  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Gorilla gorilla exemplifies a species that shows considerable variation in habitat, behaviour, genetic structure and morphology. This study examines variation of dental morphology in gorillas. Despite the marked size dimorphism, there are no significant shape differences between the sexes within subspecies. Differences in dental morphology, including tooth cusp proportions between the western G. g. gorilla and the eastern G. g. beringei are considerable. Although more similar to G. g. beringei than to the western G. g. gorilla, G. g. graueri also shows distinct morphological features. This indicates that the morphology of G. g. graueri is not merely intermediate, and genetic isolation between the two eastern subspecies could have had a substantial influence. Such extensive variation in dental morphology in Gorilla gorilla can be considered to be the result of an interesting combination of factors, including local dietary adaptations.

  • Variation in tooth morphology of Pongo pygmaeus

    A Uchida

    JOURNAL OF HUMAN EVOLUTION   34 ( 1 ) 71 - 79  1998.01  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    This study examines the postcanine morphology of Pongo pygmaeus, identifying sexual, populational, and subspecific differences, with particular focus on the cusp area proportions. Little differences between the sexes were found in molar shapes, and cusp area proportions can be considered population specific. Inter-population differences are significant between the two Bornean populations, with the Kapuas River as a biogeographic barrier, and are as great as inter-subspecies (Borneo-Sumatra) differences.

    A Uchida

    JOURNAL OF HUMAN EVOLUTION   31 ( 6 ) 489 - 497  1996.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The morphology of mandibular molars of the two Proconsul species, Proconsul major and Proconsul africanus, from the Tinderet region, Kenya was analyzed. While the molar size variability within the Tinderet P. major was slightly greater than those of local African ape subspecies, the shape variability was comparable. Because the two Proconsul species show some differences in cusp areal proportions, P. major is not just a larger P. africanus in molar morphology. Napak specimens are generally similar to the Tinderet P. major. (C) 1996 Academic Press Limited

  • What we don't know about great ape variation

    A Uchida

    TRENDS IN ECOLOGY & EVOLUTION   11 ( 4 ) 163 - 168  1996.04  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The patterning of intraspecific variation among the great apes is proving more complex than has been recognized previously. The great ape species, as currently defined, may include markedly different subspecies, alternatively, the majority of intraspecific variation may be observed at the populational level within a single subspecies. Recent studies have raised a number of questions about great ape evolutionary biology. How many species of living great apes exist? What was the original dietary adaptation of gorillas? How should we define male orang-utan adulthood?

  • Variation and ageing pattern of free steroid hormone levels among Japanese

     View Summary

    Salivary testosterone levels were analyzed for 15-90 year-old-Japanese in order to understand the variability and ageing patterns. Findings are as follows :1) The variation in salivary free testosterone levels (T) among Japanese for the both sexes is significant.2) The aging pattern in T among Japanese males is different from those of hunter-gatherers in showing a significant decrease from 20s to 40s. But it is also different from those of western industrialized countries in not showing any significant decrease after 40 years old.3) Decrease in diurnal fluctuation which has been know to be common among old men in the western countries was not significant among Japanese males. There are many 60-70 year-old males who show significant diurnal T-fluctuation. Probably they maintain healthy neuro-endocrinological systems.4) There is no clear association found between mental rotation scores and free testosterone levels for both sexes, except that males with extremely low testosterone levels scored high.5) There is a positive association between Mini-Mental-State and free T in 90-year-old males

  • Behavioral genetic study on higher order mental functions by twin method.

     View Summary

    The main results on research implementation / management are as follows.(1) Expansion of a twins registry : Complete-address investigation of the twins of an area was conducted from the basic resident register focusing on mainly Kanagawa and Chiba Prefecture, the address list (registry) was expanded, and 9000 sets of data was obtained. Thereby the base for big twins research which covers the main areas of Tokyo and the adjoining prefecture was improved.(2) Expansion and maintenance of a twin sample : it appealed for the participation to investigation based on the above-mentioned registry, about 500 sets of adolescence twins' new sample was newly obtained, and the number of twins subjects exceeded 800 sets. Moreover, data was collected also from the parents of the twins concerning a rearing and a societal attitude also from the parents who cooperated until now. Thereby, the research on the structure of the heredity about the transfer in a family of a rearing attitude or a societal attitude and environment was attained.(3) Addition of data and collect ion : From the old sample, the new data of event related potential (ERP), working memory, response time, and an individualized intelligence test (WAIS) were obtained. Moreover, from the new sample, the data about the zygosity diagnosis and the various personalities in question paper, eating behavior, etc. came to hand reliable model search of hereditability and the structure of heredity and environment. Model fitting by structural equation modeling was performed for these analyses.(4) Development of a brain-wave analysis program, an improvement of brain-waves measurement environment : development of the special brain-waves analysis program which suited the present measurement situation installed the shield room for exact brain-waves measurement. Although this was because it was obliged to move the place of a laboratory which performs brain-waves measurement for convenience' sake [unexpected], it will contribute to an improvement of experiment conditions as a result

  • Eco-ethology of West-African Chimpanzees and Other Primates

     View Summary

    1. During this study period, we found the following three new examples of tool use among wild chimpanzees at the main study area of Bossou, Guinea : l) Algae-scooping ; Chimpanzees use sticks approximately 50 cm long to scoop and ingest algae (pond scum) floating in ponds. Ghimpanzees select thin, light grasses or stems of ferns as sticks, and they remove hampering side-branches before utilizing them. Holding them in one hand, they extend the processed sticks as far as possible from the edge of ponds to scoop algae. 2) Leaf-cushion ; Chimpanzees arrange several large leaves on the ground and sit on them when the ground is moist in order to avoid getting wet. 3) Termite-fishing ; Chimpanzees insert thin stems of grasses into holes of termite mounds after breaking open the surface of the latter. Termites bite the intruding stems, and are thus lifted out of the mounds and subsequently eaten by chimpanzees retracting the stems. Termite, -fishing is widespread among chimpanzees in Gombe, East Africa, but it has rarely been seen in West Africa. Our observations of Algae-scooping and Leaf-cushion constitute the first ever reports of these newly-found tools among wild chimpanzees. These discoveries lead to a claim that chimpanzees at Bossou have the largest repertoire of tools among all wild communities studied. There have so far been a total of 27 tools observed among wild chimpanzees, 18 of which can be seen at Bossou. We are now conducting an analysis of ecological factors to explain why chimpanzees at Bossou use such a large number of tools.2. We measured the study site and made a survey map for the basis of research. We also investigated the flora of Bossou, the availability of main fruits, and their seasonal changes. This data was used to analyze the correlation between seasonal changes in fruit availability and the frequency of tool use. The latter analysis is now beginning to indicate that chimpanzees frequently use tools during fruit scarcity to gain access to foods that could not be acquired otherwise.3. We observed parturition in a l0.5-year-old female. This fact along with accumulated data on population dynamics demonstrate that in wild chimpanzees at Bossou, the age of primiparity is lower and the inter-birth interval shorter than previously reported from East Africa

  • 現生大型類人猿の種内変異分析と種間比較によるヒト上科歯形態進化の検討

     View Summary

    現生大型類人猿4種(Pongo pygmaeus,Gorilla gorilla,Pan troglodytes,Pan paniscus)の下顎大臼歯の形態について、種内変異の程度とそのパターンを分析した後、種独特の形態が存在するのかを検討した。また、現生種グループと、中新世化石ヒト上科属するインド・パキスタン出土Sivapithecusと、ケニア出土Proconsulとの比較分析を行った。形態情報としては、下顎第1大臼歯咬頭面の写真を画像解析して計測した咬頭面積およびそのプロポーションを使用した。現生種4種の種内変異の程度はさまざまで、Pongo pygmaeusでは,集団間変異が亜種間変異に相当する。使用したサンプルに観察された種内変異では、Gorilla gorillaが一番変異が著しく、Pan paniscusの変異が小さい。しかしながら、4種それぞれが、種独特の形態を示すことが明らかになった。即ち、サイズが大きく異なる雌雄で形態が類似し、また、亜種間の変異が大きい種も他種と比べて、一定の形態パターンを示す。これは、多変量解析(主成分分析、分散分析)の結果から明らかである。また、歯の部位によって、種内変異が大きい部分と種間変異が大きい部分が、異なることがわかった。この違いには、歯の発生・形成の時期と関係が影響している可能性がある。更に、現生種全体が、化石種グループとは異なる形態を示す。特に、その違いは近心部と遠心部の咬頭のプロポーションの差に顕著である。現生種は化石種にくらべ、いずれも、近心の咬頭の割合が大きい。この結果から、咬頭面の形態パターンが系統的関係をある程度反映することが示唆された

  • Development and morphological variation in Pongo pygmaeus

     View Summary

    This research focused on the developmental patterns of crania, dentition, and postcrania among wild Pongo pygameus. Skeletal parts investigated in this study were as follows : tooth eruption and wear progress, cranial sutures, proximal and distal joints of long bones, clavicle, pelvis. As size variables, size of dentition, cranial, and long bones were also measured. Analysis of developmental stages of teeth and several skeletal joints revealed the several distinct aspects of orangutan development. Those are listed below.1. Development, maturing and aging of teeth, crania, postcrania occur more or less independently, especially in males. Therefore, the definition of adult should be done carefully. 2. Basal cranial suture (spheno-occipital synchondorosis) closes only after the completion of eruption of permanent dentition, and sometimes, molars show heavy wear by then. 3. The last postcranial parts to finish development are distal ends of forelimbs. The line of distal end of ulna and radius happens after the closure of basal cranial suture. Development, maturing and aging of crania and postcranial are supposed to be controlled by endocrinological factors which are in turn related probably with social behavior. In order to have better understanding of these interactions, it is necessary to carry out longitudinal study on captive orangutans in which morphological, endocrinological and behavioral variables should be studied at the same time. In addition, in order to approach the evolutionary, and adaptive significance of such developmental patterns of orangutans, a study of wild orangutans in which association between morphology and reproductive success is necessary
