Shedding light on the origin of specific neuronal mechanisms for processing acoustic stimuli is important for understanding the evolution of primate communication. One of those specializations, lateralized processing of speech in humans, is a well-established finding. Evidence is accumulating that diverse animal taxa also show hemispheric asymmetries in the perception of conspecific sounds. Rhesus macaques, Macaca mulatta, for instance, show a right head-turning bias in response to playback of… CONTINUE READING
