Like humans, monkeys fall into the 'uncanny valley'
Date:10/13/2009

menon, there are no clear explanations for it, Ghazanfar said. One theory suggests that it is the outcome of a "disgust response" mechanism that allows humans to avoid disease. Another idea holds that the phenomenon is an indicator of humanity's highly evolved face processing abilities. Some have suggested the corpse-like appearance of some images elicits an innate fear of death. Still others have posited that the response illustrates what is perceived as a threat to human identity.

Ghazanfar said the research is likely to point him in useful directions to further explore these theories.
