The auditory behaviour of primates: a neuroethological perspective.

Author information

  • 1Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Spemannstrasse 38, 72076 Tübingen, Germany.


The ethological approach has already provided rich insights into the auditory neurobiology of a number of different taxa (e.g. birds, frogs and insects). Understanding the ethology of primates is likely to yield similar insights into the specializations of this taxa's auditory system for processing species-specific vocalisations. Here, we review the recent advances made in our understanding of primate vocal perception and its neural basis.
