Out of Our Minds
The Neuroethology of Primate Strategic Behavior
This chapter presents an alternative view to the notion that complex social behaviors in primates require complex brain processes. It argues that social behavior in primates may be mediated by relatively simple rules that use the structure of the social environment as a scaffold. This is in opposition to the notion that social knowledge must be explicitly represented by specialized neural circuits. The complexity of the social environment is, in essence, an emergent property of these simple rules of social engagement.
