Overview

In Primate Perspectives on Behavior and Cognition, experts with a diverse range of perspectives explore the contributions made to the study of primate cognition and behavior and provide guideposts for new generations of researchers studying behavior as manifested across primate species. The contributors first explore commonly used research methodology and then look at the groundbreaking content of recent research. Among the exciting topics examined in the volume: the possibility of predicting ape behavior on the basis of the results of personality tests comparative cognition: testing emergent intelligence and learning among animals, including the teaching of tool-making to apes animal counting ability experiments in measuring the path-finding abilities of primates (both humans and apes) language ability among higher primates, including neuropsychology on language and speech research in apes understanding human intelligence, cognitive processes, and motivation through data from primate research Throughout this volume, contributors provide rich data and discussion of cutting-edge studies. In addition to serving as a comprehensive and integrative review of a wide range of research areas, the chapters in this volume establish a research agenda for years (and careers) to come. This book will be a vital resource for researchers in comparative psychology and cognitive psychology as well as for behaviorists, neuropsychologists, biopsychologists, and developmental psychologists.
