Laurie Santos featured in Wall Street Journal

Wall Street Journal article The Hard Science of Monkey Business offers a fascinating peek into the work of Laurie Santos. Laurie's Comparative Cognition Laboratory explores the evolutionary origins of the human mind by comparing the cognitive abilities of human and non-human primates. Her research explores what primates understand about physical objects and their motions, how primates spontaneously reason about different kinds of things (foods, artifacts, and animals), and whether or not non-human primates possess precursors to a theory of mind.
