Chimps beat humans in memory tests

Japanese researchers have revealed the results of a fascinating study in which chimps beat humans in memory tests:



If I had to find an explanation I'd think that humans added too many programs in a relatively short period of evolution which ended up screwing our memory in favor of other traits. I kind of was impressed with the memory my 2 years old had and it seemed to fade away as she "learned" more social and specific behaviors.
