Chimpanzees make up an important classification of primates. The primary objective of the research study was to validate the difference in developmental changes that occur in the CC at infancy in both human beings and the chimpanzees. CC is directly related to a wide range of neuronal functions. The conclusion of the study is that the differences in the development of the CC and CC subdivision in the overall behavior and neuronal functioning of the two species. Though the researchers gave an implication that the differences in the development of the CC and CC subdivisions between the two species are related to brain system evolution changes that occur in the two species they did not give a clear definition of how the differences directly impact that brain system evolutional changes of both species. As a result it is important for the researchers to conduct a detailed study with the aim of defining the direct impact of the differences in the neuronal functioning and evolutional change of humans and chimpanzees. Despite bringing in new information the study presents questions to the readers on what is the significance of the differences.
