DO YOU SPEAK CHIMPANZEE? CAN YOU GESTURE LIKE A BONOBO?

In our experiment, hosted by Gorilla.sc, you will be shown a series of gesture videos and asked to click on what you think they mean. We are testing human understanding of great ape gestures, to see whether people can understand the great ape gestures without any training.

Our data collection is now finished (thank you!) but so many people enjoyed taking this study we’ve left it up as an on-line quiz! You can play for fun here; there are a few different versions so feel free to try it out a few times and see how you do!

Did you catch our study on BBC Animal Einsteins recently? If you’re curious to find out how you would do the BBC have also set up a mini-version of our gesture quiz here – have fun!
