Did you know that monkeys can make the same sounds as humans? Grace Baldridge and Brett Erlich discuss a recent discovery about monkeys and language on The Young Turks. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/go
“If you could change the way a monkey or an ape’s brain is wired, that animal would be capable of producing perfectly intelligible speech.
That’s the conclusion of a study that closely tracked the movements of a monkey’s mouth and throat with X-rays, to understand the full potential of its vocal tract.
Researchers then used that information to create a computer model of what it would sound like if the monkey were able to say phrases such as “happy holidays.”
