Live Symposium Webcast:

The live webcast for this symposium has ended. GERMAN VIEWERS: due to YouTube's restrictions on live streaming the live broadcast will not be available from Germany.

Scientists from many different fields gathered to discuss cognitive abilities often regarded as unique to humans including humor, morality, symbolism, creativity, and preoccupation with the minds of others. Emphasis was placed on the functional uniqueness of these attributes, as opposed to the anatomical uniqueness, and whether these attributes are indeed quantitatively or qualitatively unique to humans.
