Summary

This edited volume is the first of its kind to bridge the epistemological gap between primate ethologists and primate neurobiologists. Leading experts in several fields will review work ranging from primate foraging behavior to the neurophysiology of motor control, from vocal communication to the functions of the auditory cortex. This synthesis of the cognitive, ethological and neurobiological approaches to primate behavior will yield the richest understanding of our primate cousins to date and will shed light on the evolutionary development of human behavior and cognition. The book contains chapters by leading primatologists, comparative psychologists, and neuroscientists who have developed new ideas and experimental approaches and applied them to a variety of issues dealing with primate behavior and neurobiology. The volume represents an important contribution for both the professional and the student, and collects for the first time in a single book both basic and cutting-edge information on primate behavior and cognition, neurobiology, and the emerging discipline of neuroethology.
