Overview

Satellite meeting organised by Professor Nicky Clayton FRS, Dr Alex Thornton and Dr Uri Grodzinski

Event details

Empirical research into animal cognition is growing rapidly, but lacks a sound theoretical framework. How can we empirically distinguish different cognitive mechanisms, and assess their complexity? How does cognition evolve? This workshop will provide a unique forum for discussion between eminent evolutionary, cognitive and computational theorists and empirical researchers, paving the way for a robust, theoretically-grounded science of comparative cognition.

This event followed a broader Discussion meeting Animal minds: from computation to evolution 16 – 17 January 2012.
