Temperature debacle- - video
This is me trying to take the ear temperature of baby bonobos. We're doing a whole suite of studies that looks at how the bonobo's emotions are different to chimps. When you get upset, the temperature of the right side of your brain goes up and hence, the temperature in your right ear.
We're predicting that in certain situations, chimps are going to be more reactive than bonobos.
Theoretically, we have a machine that's supposed to make taking the ear temperature really easy.
At the end of the day the score was pretty much, bonobos- 1, Vanessa - 0
