I hope everyone is doing fine.
I am writing an improvisation and I would be happy if you could help me find my mistakes.
Thank you in advance!
I heard yesterday, for the first time, about the extremely weird behavior of the capuchin monkeys. Did you know it ?
If not I invite you to read on the internet the experiences that researchers have done with these monkeys.
To draw your attention I copy/paste a short part of an article.
While chimpanzees in a previous experi- ment based their helping behaviour primarily on whether or not an experimenter demonstrated a desire for the object by reaching for it, capuchins based their helping behaviour first and foremost on the presence or absence of a reward and only considered the experimenter’s goal-oriented reaching behaviour when they did not stand to gain from helping themselves. In other words, while the capuchins did show regard for others, they did so in a restricted sense, concentrating first and foremost on their own potential gain and only secondarily on the desires of others. It is possible that when capuchins helped in the absence of a reward, they did so because they thought there was some chance of being rewarded; however, it should be noted that when no reward was offered, capuchins based their helping behaviour on the experimenter’s reach, even though this cue itself was not specifically associ- ated with reward in this or previous experiments.
