Labrador Primate

Labrador Primate is the title of this blog—from from Stuart Brown’s Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul

According to Stuart, we are the Labradors of the primate world. It's all to do with neoteny—the term used to refer to how an animal’s juvenile period may stretch into adulthood. Humans are the world champions of that, apparently. 

Modern man has largely forgotten how to play. That’s a problem of which society is largely unaware. Well, since I consider myself the gold medalist of playful endeavor, I’ve made it my mission to change that.
