Potential Mechanisms for Planning for Future Needs

Mathias Osvath is the scientific director of the Primate Research Station Furuvik. In 2009, he received notoriety for showing that chimpanzees can plan for future needs. The planning actions, which took place in a calm state, included stone caching and the manufacture of discs from concrete, objects later used as missiles against zoo visitors during agitated chimpanzee dominance displays.
