No, ei nyt sentään :smt003

Mutta oikeasti, lukekaa tämä teksti.

(Meinaan kyllä ladata vastaavia artikkeleita tänne jatkossakin teidän kiusaksenne; ainakin sitten itse tiedän, mistä niitä kollektiivisesti löydän tulevaisuudessa ;)).


Monkeys pay for sexy pics

Michael Hopkin

Macaques swap juice for a glimpse of leaders' faces and females' rears.

To a monkey, some things are worth looking at more than others. A US
study
has shown that rhesus macaques will pay to look at images of powerful
or
sexually interesting fellows.

The discovery, made by neurobiologists at Duke University in Durham,
North
Carolina, supports the theory that monkeys will make sacrifices to gain
socially useful information, much as a human might spend money on a
newspaper.

Male monkeys will 'pay' in fruit juice to look at a picture of a
socially
dominant monkey or a female's hindquarters. In the wild, the animals
help
their fitness by monitoring what their leaders are doing, and which
females are sexually receptive.

Cherry paid

The researchers gave captive male rhesus macaques two options: a drink
of
cherry juice, or a different-sized shot of juice and the chance to look
at
one of a range of pictures of their troop members for just over half a
second.

By varying the amounts of juice, the team worked out how much the
monkeys
valued each image. "Monkeys are basically juice experts; they're very
sensitive to the differences," says team member Robert Deaner.

Monkeys would take a juice cut to look at powerful males' faces or the
perineum of a female, Deaner and his colleagues report in Current
Biology1. But to persuade the monkeys to stare at subordinate males,
the
researchers had to bribe them with larger drinks.

Gathering social information has costs as well as benefits, Deaner
explains. "If you stare at someone too long they might attack you," he
says. This goes for humans too: think about how uncomfortable it is to
be
stared at by a stranger for any length of time.

No surprise, then, that the juice-to-picture exchange rate was highest
for
images of female rears. "Virtually all monkeys will give up juice to
see
female hindquarters," Deaner says of his male subjects. "They really
value
the images."

Face to face

This is not monkey pornography, says Deaner. It's more to do with
assessing sexual receptiveness, which in the wild also involves
females'
behaviour and smell. The monkeys do not necessarily know they are
looking
at a picture, he adds, so their behaviour is consistent with what they
might do in a face-to-face situation.

Learning how animals weigh the value of social interactions could help
in
understanding human autism, suggests Deaner's colleague Michael Platt.
Autistics are not motivated to look at other people, and are poor at
gathering emotional information when they do.

The monkey study might even help to explain humans' fascination with
gossip magazines, Deaner suggests. The urge to keep tabs on sexy,
powerful
people may stem from our tribal past, when the actions of the group's
movers and shakers would have influenced our own lives. "Hollywood
doesn't
affect our lives at all, but people still feel they get some cultural
capital from knowing about it," he says.
