Primate Brow Flash

I never could quite get a handle on what a 'Primate Brow Flash' was. Thinking was getting me nowhere, so I tried Google. Here's where it directed me (brow flash definition at bottom of link).

Mike Carruthers: Ever wonder where the whole idea of kissing started?

Michael Sims: Psychologists will say that it might very well have begun with "mouth to mouth" feeding between a mother and child.

I guess anyone doing research on this topic will be really screwed up by my site's prominence in google for this term.
To be honest, I didn't think about it much before naming it that.

When did you first hear the term?

I can't remember. Some book about monkeys? Perhaps Chimpanzee Politics. It was a while ago and I filed it away as a good description of what it is like to be a human. Life just happens to other creatures, but we try to interpret events and fit them into some kind of model we have of the world, and when something doesn't fit, all we have is the brow flash.
