Find out your primate identity by exploring how diet relates to brain size.
Recent NYU research proposes that over evolutionary time, diet drives larger brain size in primates — not social pressures as originally thought. Learn how these findings might apply to humans, who like our primate cousins have exceptionally large brains, too! We will be exploring with a Brain interactive to have an introduction of the primates, and a Diet interactive as a fun game connected with Kinect to find out how primates find their food!
