The Route to Real Communication
One of the main problems in the world is that different groups of humans have trouble communicating with one another. Now researchers say we’d be better off if we behaved more like our close relatives, the chimpanzees. Scientists at the Zoological Society of London are looking for volunteers who are willing to test out this theory by acting like chimps in their work and home lives. They will be told to wave their arms, brandish objects to make themselves appear large and to assert authority over others, and bond with their groups by grooming each other.
