JOSEP CALL VISITS MONA

//JOSEP CALL VISITS MONA

On the occasion of our tenth anniversary, Josep Call will offer some courses in December on cognition in great apes. In addition, we are setting the basis to start a joint collaboration between the Max Planck Institute and the Mona Research Unit.


Catalan primatologist, Josep Call, works in the Department of Developmental and Comparative Psychology at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology -in Leipzig, Germany- as the director of the Primate Research Center.His work applies a multidisciplinary approach to get closer to understanding how we process the information in our human brains, studying the behavior and intelligence of the four great apes species -chimpanzees, gorillas, bonobos and orangutans- our closest relatives. Thoroughly studying the subtleties of their behavior and cognition, he has been able to discover some rudiments of what are developed capabilities in us, such as the ability to express complex ideas, planning or management of symbols.

Thanks to studies like these conducted at the Max Planck Institute, we can make inferences about the evolution of human cognition, as it does not fossilize.
