About the Edition

Animal Cognition and Sequential Behavior: Behavioral, Biological, and Computational Perspectives brings together psychologists studying cognitive skill in animal and human subjects, connectionist theorists, and neuroscientists who have a common interest in understanding function and dysfunction in the realm of complex cognitive behavior. In this volume, discussion focuses on behavioral, cognitive, psychobiological, and computational approaches to understanding the integration of ongoing behavior, with particular attention to models of timing and the organization of sequential behavior.

Exploring animal behavior and intelligence, this second edition of the popular book Animal Cognition investigates these questions and more. With a wealth of fascinating case studies, it covers all the key topics, from communication to navigation, with reference to the very latest research/5(15). Book Description. Prepared as a tribute to Donald A. Riley, the essays that appear here are representative of a research area that has loosely been classified as animal cognition -- a categorization that reflects a functionalist philosophy that was prevalent in Riley's laboratory and that many of his students absorbed.

I.) Fundamental Issues in Animal Cognition Major topics for Weeks 1 through 3: Introduction to basic questions and issues in animal cognition, history, logic, and research tactics, intelligence and consciousness in animals, the role of evolution and ecology in behavior and cognition, procedures used in the study of animal cognition, the roots. Animal Learning and Cognition: An Introduction provides an up-to-date review of the principal findings from more than a century of research into animal intelligence. This new edition has been expanded to take account of the many exciting developments that have occurred over the last ten book opens with a historical survey of the methods that have been used to study animal.

Animal cognition, or cognitive ethology, is the title given to a modern approach to the mental capacities of non human animals. It has developed out of comparative psychology, but has also been. Since the last edition of this definitive textbook was published in , much has happened in the field of animal behavior. In this fourth edition, Lee Alan Dugatkin draws on cutting-edge new work not only to update and expand on the studies presented, but also to reinforce the previous editions’ focus on ultimate and proximate causation, as well as the book’s unique emphasis on natural.

In this volume, discussion focuses on behavioral. Animal Cognition and Sequential Behavior: Behavioral, Animal Cognition and Sequential Behavior book, and Computational Perspectives: Medicine & Health Science Books @ hor: Stephen B. Fountain. This book does what any good textbook should do and that is stick to what is the accepted norm within research on animal cognition.

As we learn more, this perspective will change, and so will this textbook, however for now, it maintains a perspective which i believe to be well balanced for a basic introduction to animal cognition/5(11).

Animal cognition encompasses the mental capacities of non-human study of animal conditioning and learning used in this field was developed from comparative has also been strongly influenced by research in ethology, behavioral ecology, and evolutionary psychology; the alternative name cognitive ethology is sometimes used.

With comprehensive coverage of this field, key concepts will be explored. These include social cognition, prey and predator detection, habitat selection, mating and parenting, learning and perception. Attention is also given to animal-human co-evolution and interaction, as well as metacognition and consciousness.

Animal Cognition and Sequential Behavior: Behavioral, Biological, and Computational Perspectives brings together psychologists studying cognitive skill in animal and human subjects, connectionist theorists, and neuroscientists who have a common interest in understanding function and dysfunction in the realm of complex cognitive behavior.

The fifty-seven original essays in this book provide a comprehensive overview of the interdisciplinary field of animal cognition. The contributors include cognitive ethologists, behavioral ecologists, experimental and developmental psychologists, behaviorists, philosophers, neuroscientists, computer scientists and modelers, field biologists, and others.

The diversity of approaches is both. InHulse, Fowler, and Honig published Cognitive Processes in Animal Behavior, an edited volume that was a landmark in the scientific study of animal intelligence.

In memory of Stewart Hulse, the final chapter reprises the epilogue that he wrote for the edition of this Handbook. Hulse was not only a driving force behind the first edited volume in the field of comparative cognition, but he also served as the editor of the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Animal Behavior Processes and as a mentor to many researchers in the field.

In this completely revised second edition of Cognition, Evolution, and Behavior, Sara Shettleworth addresses these questions, among others, by integrating findings from psychology, behavioral ecology, and ethology in a unique and wide-ranging synthesis of theory and research on animal cognition, in the broadest sense--from species-specific.

Purchase Animal Cognition and Behavior, Volume 13 - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNPages: In recent years, it has become clear that humans and other animals have much in common in terms of sequential behavior and the processes that seem to be responsible for sequential learning and behavior.

However, rather than a consensus emerging regarding the nature of the mechanisms responsible for sequential behavior, competing hypotheses and theories to describe sequential behavior have.

Animal Cognition: Evolution, Behavior and Cognition / Edition 2. by Clive D.L. Wynne This book is for those who desire to learn an up-to-date history of cornerstone theories in the field thus far and gain a comprehensive introductory understanding into the function and evolution of the broad range of cognitive and behavioural faculties in Price: $ In this review, I summarize a few key ideas about animal cognition developed in a recent book (ShettleworthCognition, Evolution and Behaviour) and briefly review some areas in which interdisciplinary research on animal cognition is currently proving especially productive.

Cognition, broadly defined, includes all ways in which animals Cited by: Behaviorism- behavior should be described scientifically without attributing internal events or hypothetical constructs such as the "mind".

Cognitivism (s and s)- looks beyond behavior to explain brain-based learning (internal representations) Constructivism- learning is a process in which the learner actively builds new ideas from old.
