    Action planning in humans and chimpanzees but not in monkeys.Nobuyuki Kawai - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (1):42-43.
    Studies with primates in sequence production tasks reveal that chimpanzees make action plans before initiating responses and making on-line adjustments to spatially exchanged stimuli, whereas such planning isn't evident in monkeys. Although planning may rely on phylogenetically newer regions in the inferior parietal lobe – along with the frontal lobes and basal ganglia – it dates back to as far as five million years ago.

    “Magical number 5” in a chimpanzee.Nobuyuki Kawai & Tetsuro Matsuzawa - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (1):127-128.
    One of our recent studies has revealed that a numerically trained chimpanzee can memorize a correct sequence of five numbers shown on a monitor. Comparative investigations with humans show very similar patterns of errors in the two species, suggesting humans and chimpanzee share homologous memory processes. Whether or not 5 is a pure capacity limit for the chimpanzee remains an empirical question.
