*Patreon Preview* Decoding Academia 8: Monkey see, Monkey do?
Play • 1 hr

Ahead of the Jaron Lanier episode a special preview episode of our ongoing Decoding Academia series.

This week Matt and Chris take a look at a classic comparative study of social learning processes in chimpanzees and infants (Horner & Whiten, 2005). They discover the correct method to break into a puzzle box, that chimpanzees are sometimes more logical than people, and that popular idioms do not always house universal truths.

For anyone interested in reading the paper it is available for free here.

We will be back later in the week with our normal decoding episode.
