Savage-Rumbaugh, E. Sue
Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v58 n3-4 p243-52 1993
Discusses methods of assessing language comprehension in apes. Considers the possible effect of brain physiology on the differences between productive and receptive language skills. Examines the possibility that differences between synaptic transmission and volume transmission, or transmission across extracellular spaces, of neurological impulses in the brain may affect the integrative learning capacities of humans and apes.
