Scientists in Japan find evidence that monkeys like to watch TV. Well, duh. Don’t you think it gets boring sitting around in some lab all day? Open the cage door and see how long they stick around watching C-Span.
I have an uncomfortable sense that myself clicking a mouse and a hamster pressing a bar on a pellet dispenser would look the same on a brain scan.
In later experiments the monkeys will be given a bowl of chips and a remote. Stay tuned, or look it up on the net.
