  • Nothing significant

A vague website title, to be sure, but once you determine what it is (it’s a site for a research center that studies human evolution by investigating similarities with apes), you can appreciate the site’s resources. The Living Links Center is part of the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, the nation’s largest primate center. In addition to providing information about current research projects (spanning not only chimpanzees, but also capuchin monkeys and even elephants!), the Living Links website offers an audio/video library that includes, among other things, chimpanzee and bonobo vocalizations, interviews with scientists, and videos of chimpanzee conflict and food sharing. Additionally, the links page provides a number of primate sites. So if you’re interested in primate research, be sure to swing over to this page.

Do you think that Hart-Chabris make a better argument for achieving success than the Chua-Rubenfeld theory?
