Th epurpose of this project is to determine to what extent marmosets (Callithrix jacchus) use social information to improve their foraging efficiency. The four basic questions we want to examine are:
1) When do the monkeys use social information
2) Which information can the monkeys use
3) from whom do the monkeys learn
4) what do the monkey learn.
To investigate these questions we want to conduct a series of controlled experiments in the animal laboratory.
