Video Notes Animals feel fear, compassion, etc No other animals have vocals cords like ours – which means they cannot verbalize what they are thinking like we humans can 1966- Allen and Beatrix Gardner began teaching a chimpanzee to speak in sign language. T oday that chimpanzee has a vocabulary of 200 words All animals share the same basic emotions – fear, aggression, and the urge to procreate Emotions are just as important to sea creatures as they are to land animals When studying an octopus researchers discovered that it changed colors based on its emotions. White for fear and red for anger/aggression Both monkey and human brains produce the same brain functions when in fear Mammals are built to learn and can adapt to change (such as changes in their environment) Mammals: Mothers – provide nurture and guidance to their young. Babies study their mothers faces to see if what they are doing is acceptable Contact comfort – consist of clinging, holding and grooming of the infant In a study with recess monkeys 2 surrogates were offered: One with a wire body and a bottle and another with a cloth body and face. The monkeys only spent one hour per day on the wire monkey and 17 hours per day on the cloth monkey. Researches stated that the babies were looking for the comfort of their mothers more than the food. No mammal can survive without the devotion of its mother. They will cry to alert their mothers of any troubles The study of emotional stress and survival (on recess monkeys): researchers believe differences in emotional styles at birth determines how well they survive. Monkeys who has a higher level of emotional control have a better chance of survival All mammal brains work with a reward or punishment system Play activates neurons in the brain that can make an animal smarter
