Great spark to initiate a discussion on the definition of "culture" in a cultural psych course and whether animals have culture and transmit culture. Thank you.

Interesting point Ranjana. I never thought of the koko issue as a cultural one. But I see your point - assuming koko is capable of communicating in sign language in advanced ways, can she transmit culture to other apes....?
