In the field of cognitive and behavioral psychology, many researchers have turned to studying primates. Various types of monkeys including chimps, bonobos, gorillas, macaques, and capuchins have revealed more than many would have imagined about ourselves (you know, humans). Studying their cognition, behavior, and brains at a neural level has shined light on our relations to them and how we differ. But clearly when it comes to greed and fairness our behaviors are incredibly, and almost frighteningly, similar! Enjoy!
