They captured Fou fou’s every movement on camera and broke down her behaviour into eye movements, facial expressions and physical actions. The right side of the body was controlled by the left side of the brain, which is also involved in language development, Dr Sebestyen reports.
She told Science Daily: ‘Apes, like humans, use a range of non-verbal communicative social skills such as facial expression, eye gaze and manual gestures, and tactile signals, such as grooming and huddling, which are used for social cohesion.’Dr Sebestyen is now beginning a study on children aged 2-4 years with language impairments and hopes the findings will help us to understand the non-verbal communication that is critical for normal language.
Most of my close friends here in Medellin are foreigners and I have seen girls break their neck checking them out as we walk down the street.
So I do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.
I had to learn everything from experience, and it’s been a blast.
Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before.
This has proven to be essential for me when picking up women in Medellin. Socially, women are a little different than the southern California women I was used to picking up.
The study, by researchers at the University of Sussex, showed that gorilla’s use facial expressions and mouth movements were controlled by the left side of the brain – just like it is in humans.
Penetrating that group of friends, playing “the game” in order to get to your “target girl” is hard work, and sometimes does not work if you don’t speak Spanish well enough for her to understand.
Many guys who come to Colombia cannot pick up girls in their own native language let alone in Spanish and some even have the audacity to say that the women here are just “gold diggers” or “too difficult” and that is not accurate at all.
I do this often, and many times I will dance one or two songs without even saying a word.
Imagine, our hands are on each other’s bodies before even knowing each other’s names.
