    Copying a Model Stack of Colored Blocks by Chimpanzees and Humans.Misato Hayashi, Sumirena Sekine, Masayuki Tanaka & Hideko Takeshita - 2009 - Interaction Studies 10 (2):130-149.
    The present study assesses imitative ability in chimpanzees and human children. A direct comparison of these two species was conducted in an object-manipulation task. The subjects were required to copy the model stack by stacking colored blocks in the same order as the model. Four juvenile/adolescent chimpanzees failed to copy the model stack even after a long training-period. Two adult chimpanzees eventually learned to copy the model stack of two blocks. However, they failed to copy the model of three blocks, (...)

    Dynamic Comparison of the Development of Combinatory Manipulations Between Chimpanzee and Human Infants.Hideko Takeshita - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (1):65-66.
    I present my observations of combinatory manipulations by three infant chimpanzees in a series of test tasks. Common characteristics of motor patterns were observed across the tasks between both infant chimpanzees and 1-year-old infants. Based on the results, I point out that comparative approach can illuminate Thelen et al.'s arguments.

  6. The Supine Position of Postnatal Human Infants.Hideko Takeshita, Masako Myowa-Yamakoshi & Satoshi Hirata - 2009 - Interaction Studies. Social Behaviour and Communication in Biological and Artificial Systemsinteraction Studies / Social Behaviour and Communication in Biological and Artificial Systemsinteraction Studies 10 (2):252-269.
    In this review, we discuss the implications of placing an infant in the supine position with respect to human cognitive development and evolution. When human infants are born, they are relatively large and immature in terms of postural and locomotor ability as compared with their closest relatives, the great apes. Hence, human mothers seemingly adopt a novel pattern of caring for their large and heavy infants, i.e., placing their infants in the supine position; this promotes face-to-face communication with their infants.
