Two studies
Two studies that might be interesting to philosophy:

1) Meeting with questions of language aquisition and the naming vs. syntax debate, a study that has parrots using simply language, roughly on the level of a child learning to comprehend and produce language. The birds name colors, shapes, numbers, some simply organizations and spellings.

2) Maybe with connection to mind/body debates, some monkeys at Duke can control robotic arms via electrodes planted in their brains.
