Layman's description

The project is part of creating a permanent infrastructure for cognitive primatological research att Lund University Primate Research Station Furuvik. An effective way to gather data is to offer animals computerised tasks on a touchscreen. But because animals don't understand instructions, the interface between animal and task demands special pedagogy. The project aims to develop such pedagogy.
