ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which suggests monkey learn from active learning in the same manner that humans do. Monkeys were tested using a touch-screen interface that rewarded them with food when a set of photographs were placed in the correct order. Tests suggested the monkey performed better when they learned the order without computer hints, suggesting memory recall strengthens long-term learning.
