Here Koko is writing on her own daily meal form. Is she giving the staff a good/bad review, selecting what she wants in her next meal, or just using the form as scratch paper? Email your best guess or hypothesis to

Note that we are switching over to an electronic meal form that will record Koko"s ratings on meals and foods, and help us better assess and address her food preferences (and nutrition) over time. Should we provide Koko with a computer interface to this meal database too, or just let her continue to work with the more anachronistic tools of paper and pen. Do you think a computer would have the same effect on Koko as it has on humans (over-productivity, over-thinking and over-stimulation)? Please email your thoughts on this to
