A new research from the University of Vienna has revealed that the vocal tract of non-human primates such as monkeys and apes are designed for talking but their brains are not wired for it.
Is there a possibility that other species besides human beings could talk too? A team of scientists has discovered that the specific gene for speech is also present in mice.
When "smelling" our fears is never enough, dogs can also understand what our facial expressions mean.
Researchers from the University of Southern Denmark recently discovered that despite having different organs for voice production, humans and birds use the exact same physical mechanism to make vocalizations.
To better understand the social coordination of chimpanzees, researchers tested to see if a female bonobo could synchronize with a human drummer. The animal's success in matching beats sheds light on the evolution of speech and music.
