Monkeys are like people tend to keep up, scientists have found

People have been known to unconsciously adjust their movements under the people nearby — go for a walk in the foot or clap in rhythm during the concert.
Monkeys as well as humans, tend to synchronize their movements with their neighbors and move them at the same pace, scientists have found out of the Institute for Brain Research Center of Japanese RIKEN.

People have been known to unconsciously adjust their movements under the people nearby — go for a walk in the foot or clap in rhythm during the concert. The group, led by Dr. Naotaka Fujii (Naotaka Fujii) in experiments with Japanese macaques found that the same behaviors characteristic and primates.

The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, researchers conducted a series of experiments with monkeys in which monkeys have been many times to press the button. In different phases of macaques had to perform this movement alone, with a partner, or seeing the neighbor to do the same job, on the screen.

As it turned out, the monkey change the pace of their movements, speeding up or slowing them down so as to get in rhythm with your partner — whether real or on TV. Previous studies have shown that learning to consciously synchronize their movement is quite difficult for the monkeys.

"The reasons for the monkey to synchronize their movements are not clear. This can be a vital aspect of social adaptive behavior that is important for survival in the wild" — they wrote.
