The New York Times Syndicate (NYTS) is offering another Nature News Service video starring some smart monkeys.

Researchers at the Italian National Research Council in Rome taught monkeys to use tokens to “buy” food, and found that the animals are willing to pay more for the best snacks.

A 550-word article accompanies the video.

The previous NYTS-distributed video showed a pair of monkeys using only their thoughts to control a mechanical arm reaching for food. A June 4 E&P item about that video can be seen here.
