Tetsuro Matsuzawa on the chimpanzee mind

An EarthSky extended Podcast 18 May 09


“The chimpanzee has a very special cognitive capability of immediately memorizing things in front of him. This does not mean chimpanzees are better than us in all the means of cognition. What we have to know is, let’s say farewell to human/animal dichotomy. We share some things. And humans and chimpanzees are very similar, but different.” ? Tetsuro Matsuzawa

Tetsuro Matsuzawa of the Primate Research Institute in Japan talked with EarthSky’s Jorge Salazar about the intelligence of chimpanzees. His studies show that chimps excel in short- term memory tests, and more.
