Comprehension of role reversal in chimpanzees: evidence of empathy?

D POVINELLI, K NELSON, S BOYSEN
1992 Animal Behaviour  
After the chimpanzee subjects reached near perfect performance, the roles in each chimpanzee-human dyad were reversed.  ...  Four chimpanzees, Pan troglodytes, were individually trained to cooperate with a human partner on a task that allowed both participants to obtain food rewards.  ...  The research was also supported in part by NIMH Grant R03 MH44022-0I and by NSF Grant BNS-8820027 to S.T.B.  ...
