Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)
The LRC is home to four chimpanzees. The chimpanzees, Lana, Panzee, Sherman, and Mercury, were part of the first LRC project, producing a language analog of human language in a nonhuman primate, in 1971. They are currently active in a wide array of comparative cognition studies: spatial memory, delay of gratification, numerical cognition, analogical reasoning, and cooperation.
|Rhesus Monkeys (Macaca mulatta)
Eight males currently make up the LRC's rhesus team productively working at computerized testing systems on tasks designed to assess learning and cognitive skills such as memory, knowledge of numbers, concepts and reasoning ability.
|Capuchin Monkeys (Cebus apella)
The LRC is home to three groups of socially-housed of capuchin monkeys (N = 22) actively participating in projects designed to evaluate a variety of social behavior including cooperation as well as computerized tasks to assess learning and cognition.
