Spontaneous Altruism by Chimpanzees and Young Children

An open access document published on PLoSBiology.

Be sure to watch the videos.

[Note: The difference between honesty and dishonesty in science is exemplified by the contrast between this paper -- where videos referred to are available for inspection -- and papers from researchers at the University of Wisconsin National Primate Research Center like "Effects of amygdala lesions on sleep in rhesus monkeys" -- where videos referred to were destroyed in response to requests for copies. [Here, here, and here, 628 Pieces of Primate Research Garbage.]
