  • brain
  • This was especially true after the release of Frederick Wiseman's 1974 film Primate, which was shot at Yerkes and depicted primates undergoing surgical procedures, as well as a transcardial perfusion and brain extraction. (wikipedia.org)

  • tarsier
  • It is somewhat like today's prosimians--the lemur, loris or bush baby, he added, but is perhaps most akin to the modern tarsier, a rat-like tree-dweller thought to occupy the intermediate stage between lower primates and anthropoids. (washingtonpost.com)
  • Still, he said, the connection between the new primate and the tarsier "is not very strong. (washingtonpost.com)
  • the tarsier is probably the only primate that is exclusively carnivorous, feeding on insects, lizards, and snakes. (britannica.com)
  • branch
  • Molecular clock studies suggest that the primate branch may be even older, originating near the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary or around 63-74 mya. (wikipedia.org)

  • rodents
  • Both Gebo and Dagosto are foot bone specialists, and in addition to primates, they found remains of rodents, lizards, birds, frogs, rabbits and other small creatures. (washingtonpost.com)
  • Primates are usually found to have richer behavioral repertoires and better cognitive abilities than rodents of similar brain size. (pnas.org)
  • physiology
  • Generally speaking, primates are omnivorous, as the physiology of their digestive system attests. (britannica.com)
  • The study of primate locomotion is a unique discipline that by its nature is interdis- ciplinary, drawing on and integrating research from ethology, ecology, comparative anat- omy, physiology, biomechanics, paleontology, etc. (springer.com)
  • ecology
  • The diet of primates is a factor of their ecology that, during their evolution, has clearly played an important role in their dispersion and adaptive radiation as well as in the development of the teeth, jaws, and digestive system. (britannica.com)
