Brains, awareness, and options

Yes, I've been busy.

And now I shall add insult to injury by making a faux post! Here's a video of a clip from a special called, Ape Genius.

It's been popping up in my head lately. I think it's because I'm in the midst of studying psychopharmacology, and because I'm studying how awareness of our options helps us to adapt (and how being unaware of our options prevents us from finding what can be elegant solutions).

Moral of the story?

Think chimp.

You might just solve your puzzles.
