Welcome to the Cebus Lab

Welcome to the Laboratory for Comparative Economics and Behavioral Studies (CEBUS Lab) housed at Georgia State University's Language Research Center and headed by Dr. Sarah Brosnan.

The CEBUS Lab investigates topics related to the evolution of decision-making and economic behavior across the primate Order. One of our major areas of research is exploring how non-human primates make such decisions, and how those decisions are altered based on social and ecological contexts. We take an explicitly comparative approach, studying eight primate species, humans, and non-primate animals, to better understand the evolution of these behaviors. Please explore our research or publication pages to learn more about our work. We also have a short video about some of our work below, courtesy of NSF’s Science Nation.
