Spontaneous tool use and sensorimotor intelligence in Cebus compared with other monkeys and apes

  • Suzanne Chevalier-Skolnikoff (a1)


Spontaneous tool use and sensorimotor intelligence in Cebus were observed to determine whether tool use is discovered fortuitously and learned by trial-and-error or, rather, whether advanced sensorimotor abilities (experimentation and insight) are critical in its ontogeny and evolution.
