The work is published in the journal Current Biology, and its summary reports NewScientist. Rhesus monkeys were trained to watch on a computer screen for moving dots. Animals had to translate that point of view, which light up brighter than the rest.

During training, biologists have watched what area of the brain involved in performing the task. For this purpose, functional MRI, which shows the activity of cells
