    ..For the unimanual, but not the bimanual task, we found that the handedness index increased with age. Our results add to the growing body of evidence that monkeys do not show hand preference at the population level...
  2. pmc Old world monkeys compare to apes in the primate cognition test battery
    Vanessa Schmitt
    Cognitive Ethology Lab, German Primate Center, Gottingen, Germany
    PLoS ONE 7:e32024. 2012
    ..One limitation, however, is that the initial experiments were devised to tap into human specific skills in the first place, thus potentially underestimating both true nonhuman primate competencies as well as species differences...

    Vanessa Schmitt
    Cognitive Ethology Laboratory, German Primate Center, Gottingen, Göttingen 37077, Germany
    Nat Commun 2:257. 2011
    ..Reward replacement apparently facilitated representation of the food items as signifiers for other foods, which in turn supported a higher acuity in decision making...

    ..These findings highlight the importance of the test conditions, and question some of the assumptions about species-specific differences in the object-choice task. ..
