Scientists at the Aarhus University Center on Autobiographical Memory Research in Denmark studying chimpanzees and orangutans have found that the primates have memories much like ours. The study "tells us that our memory systems are not unique," said Gema Martin-Ordas, who co-authored the study that was published today in Current Biology. In the latest experiment, the primates recalled where tools were hidden in an exercise they participated in three years ago, surprising the researchers.
