Description

Is your African grey parrot simply repeating a previously heard word or is he using language? Does your dog understand that objects continue to exist even when out of view? Does your pet spider have a map of their world? In this class, we will cover topics in the field of comparative psychology and cognition with an emphasis on current research. Comparative psychologists focus on the evolutionary, developmental and environmental variables influencing behavior of various species of animals. In this class, we will cover the history of animal behavior and cognition, the role and dangers of anthropomorphism and anthropocentrism, and cover key topics in animal cognition research such as social learning, abstract concepts, communication and language, and theory of mind.
