"These studies tell us that elaborate short-term memory skills may have had
a much more salient function in early humans than is present in modern
humans, perhaps due to our increasing reliance on language-based memory
skills." said Dr Parr.

This collaborates what Asian philosphers discovered eons ago, that
language and intellection hinder direct experience.

students. It would have been more correct to use chimps that are
currently enrolled in college..., :-D
