We had such an amazing response to our recent experiments that we’re currently busy crunching oodles of awesome data! That means we don’t have any experiments online live right now sorry – but please check back soon! 

 

CAN YOU TELL IF TWO CHIMPANZEES ARE RELATED JUST By LOOKING AT THEIR PHOTOS?

In our experiment, hosted by Gorilla.sc, you will see a photo of a chimpanzee and four possible matches. Can you tell who is related to who? Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters – they’re all there! Humans can recognise biological relatives through facial features; we want to explore how kin-based facial recognition evolved in humans and other primates.

DATA COLLECTION NOW FINISHED – THANK YOU!

Before the experiment begins, you will be asked for consent and given detailed instructions. You can contact us if you have any questions or concerns about the experiment. Enjoy!
