1. Munir, Gina. The Cognitive Capabilities of the Siamang (Symphalangus syndactylus).

Degree: MS, Biology, 2018, Indiana University of Pennsylvania

Comprehensive cognitive testing has been completed with zoologically housed siamangs (a member of the primate family Hylobatidae) using Monkey CANTAB cognition testing software (Lafayette-Campden Neuroscience) and a touchscreen apparatus. Five different operant tests examining distinctive perceptual and cognitive functions were used to train and test each subject over a period of ca. 5 weeks. Over 1500 cognitive trials were completed with 3 subjects. Siamangs completed several cognitive tests well above chance level, with performance levels that meet or exceed results obtained in tests of Old World monkey species (including macaques [sp. Macaca] and baboons [sp. Papio]). For some tests, siamang results closely match those of great apes. These data comprise the first successful tests of a hylobatid ape using modern cognitive testing methods and suggest that hylobatids may exhibit cognitive skills exceeding those expected by their phylogenetic position among the haplorhines. Advisors/Committee Members: Paul Nealen, Ph.D., Bill Brenneman, Ph.D., Daniel Widzowski, Ph.D., Summer Arrigo-Melson, Ph.D..
