Like humans, apes use hand and body movements as well as vocalisations to communicate with each other. Are their gestures similar to ours and could humans understand their meaning? Dr Cat Hobaiter is a Primatologist at the University of St Andrews and her research focuses on ape communication and the evolution of language.
