Rodent or primate?

ComputerWeeklyStaff Profile: ComputerWeeklyStaff


Scientists have made a breakthrough and cured colour blindness in Squirrel Monkeys.

Two squirrel monkeys were trained to perform standard colour-blindness tests and communicate what colours they were seeing to the researchers via a computer touch screen.

Downtime applauds this, but can’t help thinking think the scientists should have cured the Monkeys’ split personalities first. Who cares if you can’t recognise colours if you can’t identify your own species?
