Can apeing around resolve workplace conflicts?
Tuesday 6 April 2004
We are calling for volunteers to take part in a new study into human and chimpanzee behaviours - Now closed
Chimps are our closest living relatives, and as such share a variety of similarities, not only in genetic make-up but also in expression and behaviour.
We are asking volunteers to 'talk chimp' in everyday life and see how primate patter can resolve workplace conflicts, express emotions and strengthen human bonds. The results of this study will be released later in the year to see just how 'talking chimp' can help in everyday life.
This research coincides with the opening of our new chimp facility at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, we are investigating these similarities to enable us to communicate even better with our chimps and to also see what we can learn when it comes to communicating with our human colleagues.
