    Alicia P Melis
    Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany
    J Comp Psychol 120:154-62. 2006
    ..These results suggest that chimpanzees can, in some circumstances, actively manipulate the visual and auditory perception of others by concealing information from them...

    Felix Warneken
    Department of Developmental and Comparative Psychology, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany
    PLoS Biol 5:e184. 2007
