Sumatran orangutan Tsunami wears eye tracking equipment at Malaysia’s National Zoo in Kuala Lumpur. A team from the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, led by neuroscientist Dr Neil Mennie, is studying the eye movements of the seven-year-old orangutan to explain some of the mysteries of the visual brain and improve the lives of captive-bred animals.
