To our knowledge, this is the first experimental evidence of chimpanzee imitation in a functional task designed to simulate foraging behavior hypothesized to be transmitted culturally in the wild....

Imitation of the sequential structure of actions by chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes).
Whiten A. Whiten A. J Comp Psychol. 1998 Sep;112(3):270-81. doi: 10.1037/0735-7036.112.3.270. J Comp Psychol. 1998. PMID: 9770315
Imitation was studied experimentally by allowing chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) to observe alternative patterns of actions for opening a specially designed "artificial fruit." ...

Social complexity and social intelligence.
Whiten A. Whiten A. Novartis Found Symp. 2000;233:185-96; discussion 196-201. doi: 10.1002/0470870850.ch12. Novartis Found Symp. 2000. PMID: 11276903 Review.
In addition to this hypothesis about the function of intellect, a secondary claim is that the very structure of intelligence has been moulded to be 'social' in character, an idea that presents a challenge to orthodox views of intelligence as a general-purpose …

We suggest that human culture exhibits key Darwinian evolutionary properties, and argue that the structure of a science of cultural evolution should share fundamental features with the structure of the science of biological evolution. ...It is argued that studying culture …

The evolution of animal 'cultures' and social intelligence.
Whiten A, van Schaik CP. Whiten A, et al. Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci. 2007 Apr 29;362(1480):603-20. doi: 10.1098/rstb.2006.1998. Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci. 2007. PMID: 17255007 Free PMC article. Review.
Decades-long field research has flowered into integrative studies that, together with experimental evidence for the requisite social learning capacities, have indicated a reliance on multiple traditions ('cultures') in a small number of species. ...Phylogenetic comp …

Learning from others' mistakes? limits on understanding a trap-tube task by young chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) and children (Homo sapiens).
Horner V, Whiten A. Horner V, et al. Among authors: whiten a. J Comp Psychol. 2007 Feb;121(1):12-21. doi: 10.1037/0735-7036.121.1.12. J Comp Psychol. 2007. PMID: 17324071
A trap-tube task was used to determine whether chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) and children (Homo sapiens) who observed a model's errors and successes could master the task in fewer trials than those who saw only successes. ...Three- to 4-year-old children showed a

Social learning of nut-cracking behavior in East African sanctuary-living chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii).
Marshall-Pescini S, Whiten A. Marshall-Pescini S, et al. Among authors: whiten a. J Comp Psychol. 2008 May;122(2):186-94. doi: 10.1037/0735-7036.122.2.186. J Comp Psychol. 2008. PMID: 18489234
Nut cracking is restricted to communities of wild chimpanzees living in West Africa, suggesting it is an example of a socially transmitted tradition. ...Direct comparisons are made with a study carried out in the wild, revealing striking similarities in developmenta …

Review. Establishing an experimental science of culture: animal social diffusion experiments.

A growing set of observational studies documenting putative cultural variations in wild animal populations has been complemented by experimental studies that can more rigorously distinguish between social and individual learning. ...Since the spread of culture is inherentl
