comment Does an exceptional working memory inhibit intelligence?
@Chris, by Matsuzawa's hypothesis I mean the quoted text in your question. By the way, I hardly understand how (and why) working memory would inhibit problem solving and language.

comment Does an exceptional working memory inhibit intelligence?
I am sure there are references in the field of developmental psychology demonstrating that WM could be a good predictor for general IQ, but I don't remeber them... some specialist in this topic ? Anyway, at the pure logical level, the fact that chimps are better at WM tests is not a demonstration of Matsuzawa's hypothesis.

comment How to adjust SSE or RMSE for the number of free parameters in the model?
Not sure to understand what you mean by "adjusted" here ? Do you mean adjusted as for "goodness of fit" or as correction in regards to some parameters ?
