Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In human developmental psychology or non-human primate experiments, ordinal numerical competence or ordinal numerical knowledge refers to the ability to 'count' objects in order and to understand the greater than and less than relationships between numbers. It has been shown that children as young as 2 can make some ordinal numerical decisions. There are studies indicating that some non-human primates, like chimpanzees rhesus monkeys have some ordinal numerical competence.In December 2006, an inquiry chaired by Sir David Weatherall, emeritus professor of medicine at Oxford University, concluded that there is a "strong scientific and moral case" for using primates in some research.
