In this talk, Dr. Kazuo Fujita will present some research from his lab on various cognitive functions in dogs conducted as an activity of CAMP-WAN, Companion Animal Mind Project - Wide Area Network, Kyoto University. Topics include: episodic use of incidentally formed memory, multimodal recognition of owners and genders, understanding of social characteristics of humans, inference of physical environment from social information, and behavioral characteristics related to genetic variations. We find wonderful intelligence and behavioral flexibility of dogs in many of the tests but at the same time limitations of their cognitive abilities. A question and answer session will follow, moderated by Monique Udell PhD.
