A recent analysis proves that the personalities of chimpanzees, who are also referred as human counterparts, can be ascertained with the help of their respective brain structure. A team consisting of Roberts Latzman and his associates examined the brains of 107 chimpanzees using magnetic resonance image (MRI) scans. Along with that, a personality questionnaire was also revealed to the chimpanzees to assess their qualities.

The researchers, thus, found out that the availability of gray matter in the anterior cingulate cortexes of the brains is the main determinant. The link is evident; the existence‚Ķ
