Gibson apella, two Saimiri sciureus, and two Aotus trivirgatus. Each database has 47 primates, including a combined total of 42 ape brains representing all extant ape genera. This is the largest sample of ape brain and brain-part volumes ever compiled. A sample of this size permits a more rigorous statistical treatment using regression analysis because the data can be reliably subdivided into “monkey and ape” or “monkey and hominoid” groupings or grades.

In the hemisphere to vermis relation, both gibbons and humans fit on the regression line with the rest of the apes, and all apes and humans are clearly distinct from the monkeys. The differential increase in the volume of the cerebellum beyond allometric constraints has been documented by Rilling and Insel for the Yerkes database (1998), but our study attributes this expansion to the increase in the lateral over the medial cerebellum, enabling a more precise functional interpretation of the data.
