President's Address: From Aristotle to Zebra Fish

 

What do animals know and how do we know that they know? Like babies, animals cannot tell us in words what they know but with good detective work and a little bit of luck, we have discovered, by examining their behavior, that both have rich representations of their worlds and that they can use these representations in flexible ways. In this talk, Dr. Colwill shared insights into the animal mind and the behavioral tools she uses in the laboratory and at home to dissect what they know.
