Behavioral and neural processing of faces and expressions in nonhuman primates (supplement)  

Among humans, there are numerous disorders that include deficits of social cognition, such as face recognition and/or producing and responding to facial expressions. In order to better understand these disorders, nonhuman primates are often used as models for the human condition. However, extremely little is known about the basic behavior and biology of socio-cognitive processes in nonhuman primates. Therefore, it is the goal of these studies to compare directly the ability of monkeys and apes to process facial stimuli in order to better understand and treat human diseases. Project Status
