Primate Neuroethology

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the evolution of primate sensory and motor systems, especially with regard to the evolution of a parietal-frontal cortical system that uses information produced by early stages of sensory processing to guide ongoing behavior. It begins with an overview of the components of sensory and motor systems that have been retained from non-primate ancestors. It then attempts to reconstruct the organization of these systems from early primates to branches of the anthropoid radiation, including humans.
