Abstract:
According to the ''Social Brain Hypothesis'', social complexity would be a main selective pressure for enhanced cognitive skills. Recently, high levels of fission-fusion dynamics have been proposed as one important aspect of social complexity, since individuals have to deal with more frequent changes in subgroup size and composition. Consequently, they might also show an enhancement of some cognitive skills critical to fission-fusion dynamics.
