Publisher's Summary

Apes understand what others believe to be true. What’s more, they realize that those beliefs can be wrong, researchers say. To make this discovery, the researchers devised experiments involving a gorilla-suited person or a squirreled-away rock that had been moved from their original hiding places - something the apes knew, but a person called in to look for King Kong or the stone didn’t.

"Apes Recognize Others' False Beliefs" is from the November 12, 2016 issue of Science News.
