The early organization was studied of the littermate search functional system. The locomotor elements of exploratory behavior and development of social activity of single rat pups and in groups of three ones were analyzed under conditions of their isolation from mother and nest. The influence was demonstrated of the littermate presence on realization of different types of movements. The age was experimentally determined at which rat pups were capable for learning to seek for their littermates on the basis of olfactory clues.
