Paired rats, gave one a distinctive flavoured food, and found the other would select the same food when given a choice
observed monkeys imitating a leader who washed potatoes before eating
investigated chimps' ability to deceive for food
found twins reared together had a very similar intelligence concordance rate to twins reared apart
Found nutrition has an effect on intelligence: children given dietary supplements had higher IQs after than those who didn't
suggested animals don't necessarily use trial and error, but think about the problem first, e.g. Sultan the chimp.
Found lab-reared monkeys have no natural fear to snakes, but can learn this fear
Established a basic idea of what intelligence was by asking leading psychologists and members of the public to define what they thought made a person 'intelligent'
