A SCIENTIST from the University of Portsmouth has helped develop two interactive games.

Dr Bridget Waller and Dr Katie Slocombe from the University of York have developed the games to compare human mental abilities with those of other primates, and give people a taste of what it’s like to study primates in the wild.

The games were funded by a grant from the British Psychological Society. The games were launched at Edinburgh Zoo.
