  1. ncbi request reprint Leopard predation and primate evolution
    Klaus Zuberbuhler
    School of Psychology, University of St Andrews, Scotland
    J Hum Evol 43:873-86. 2002
    ..We discuss these findings in light of some recent experimental data and suggest that the principal effect of leopard predation has been on primates' cognitive evolution...

    Klaus Zuberbuhler
    School of Psychology, University of St Andrews, UK
    Curr Biol 16:R123-5. 2006
    ..Research on alarm calls has yielded rare glimpses into the minds of our closest relatives. A new study suggests that primates monitor the effect alarm calls have on others...
  4. pmc Community-specific evaluation of tool affordances in wild chimpanzees
    Thibaud Gruber
    School of Psychology, University St Andrews, St Andrews, KY16 9JP, Scotland, United Kingdom Budongo Conservation Field Station, Masindi, Uganda
    Sci Rep 1:128. 2011
    ..Culture appears to shape how chimpanzees see the world, suggesting that a cognitive component underlies the observed behavioural patterns...

    Kate Arnold
    School of Psychology, University of St Andrews, St Andrews KY16 9JP, UK
    Nature 441:303. 2006
    ..Our findings indicate that non-human primates can combine calls into higher-order sequences that have a particular meaning...
  7. ncbi request reprint Agonistic screams in wild chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) vary as a function of social role
    Katie E Slocombe
    Centre for Social Learning and Cognitive Evolution, School of Psychology, University of St Andrews, St Andrews, KY16 9JP Scotland
    J Comp Psychol 119:67-77. 2005
    ..The authors propose that these 2 distinct scream variants, produced by victims and aggressors during agonistic interactions, may be promising candidates for functioning as referential signals...
  8. pmc Male blue monkeys alarm call in response to danger experienced by others
    Sarah Papworth
    School of Psychology, University of St Andrews, St Andrews KY16 9JP, UK
    Biol Lett 4:472-5. 2008
    ..The results suggest that males took into account the degree of danger experienced by other group members...
  9. pmc Predation increases acoustic complexity in primate alarm calls
    Claudia Stephan
    School of Psychology, University of St Andrews, St Andrews KY16 9JP, UK
    Biol Lett 4:641-4. 2008
    ..We concluded that Diana monkeys are predisposed to use their repertoire in context-specific ways, but that ontogenetic experience determines how individual calls are assembled into meaningful sequences...

    Thibaud Gruber
    Centre for Social Learning and Cognitive Evolution and Scottish Primate Research Group, School of Psychology, University of St Andrews, St Andrews, KY169JP, UK
    Curr Biol 19:1806-10. 2009
    ..Our results indicate that, when genetic and environmental factors are controlled, wild chimpanzees rely on their cultural knowledge to solve a novel task...

    Simone Pika
    School of Psychology, University of St Andrews, St Andrews, Scotland, United Kingdom
    Am J Primatol 70:207-10. 2008
    ..Our observations thus may imply that shared intentionality, the ability to understand and shares intention with other individuals, has emerged in the primate lineage before the origins of hominids...

    Katie E Slocombe
    School of Psychology, University of St Andrews, Scotland
    Curr Biol 15:1779-84. 2005
