Project Nim was designed by a Columbia University psychologist to refute Noam Chomsky's claim that language is exclusive to humans. Nim Chimpsky was raised like a human child and taught American Sign Language while living with his "adoptive family" in their Manhattan town house. Then the study's funding ended, and Nim's problems began. Exiled from the people he loved, caged and rotated in and out of various facilities, Nim's humanlike qualities and ability to converse with and charm everyone he met proved to be his salvation.
