Current JobPostdoctoral Research Fellow
What question could we try to answer together?:
Would you like to know how clever your pet is (if you have a pet) or the animals that frequently visit your garden? or those that live in urban parks? if so, I would like to invite you to:
- develop several ‘IQ’ tests (designs and measurements) for them/ change some parts of the available ‘IQ’ tests in primates, bees, squirrels, and parrots
and 2) test them out for your pet, garden visitors and wildlife!
What do I need help with from students?:
Let’s do these together:
- Choose three-four species before designing any tests
- Decide what tests would we like to carry out (colour learning? shaping learning? innovative problem solving? symmetric/asymmetric pattern learning? or concept like ‘more than’ or ‘less than’? etc)
- Design the tests
- Test out the tests at home, at your garden or at parks 🙂
Why you should vote for this project::
Because we will get time to interact with animals while understanding what is in their little head! Knowing what they think will help us to understand ourselves better too!
