In March 2006 I proposed the existence of a primate/vertebrate brain centre responsible for the management of social status. This is required by the default hypothesis as there must be a deep seated neurological means of individuals bonding with the 'group leader'. I posted this further hypothesis on the newsgroup .Science biology evolution
By 2008 MRI research indicated the existence of such a centre in or near the amygdala both in humans and macaques.
April 2008 Zinc et al found evidence for the centre in humans
