Primate Neuroethology

Todd M. Preuss

Oxford University Press

This chapter advocates an evolutionary approach to understanding comparative brain anatomy in primates. It argues that deep understanding of the relationships between brain and behavior requires determining how evolution modifies specific systems of neurons and their interconnections, and not just relating brain size to gross measures of cognition or behavior. Such neuroethological studies will require active management of captive and wild populations of primates needed for detailed comparison.

Keywords:   evolutionary approach, primate brain, comparative brain anatomy, neuroethology
