Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the motivation for the book, which aims to bridge the epistemological gap between ethologists and neurobiologists who study primates by collecting, 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. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
