Main Topic: COMPARATIVE COGNITION USING THE DOMESTIC CHICK AS ANIMAL MODEL SYSTEM

Specific Topics:

1- Number-space mapping

Usually adult humans think about numbers as been represented onto a mental line oriented from left (small numbers) to right (large numbers). The influence of the educational factors in determining the orientation of the human mental number line has been extensively debated. We propose a series of studies investigating the effects of language and culture in determining the origin of the orientation of the mental number line.

2- Ordinal abilities

Ordinarily can be considered as the capability of identifying an element in a series of target elements on the basis of its ordinal position. Which hemisphere is in charge of processing this information? Are the two hemispheres processing distinct characteristics of the information (spatial and/or numerical)? Is ordinality related to the level of brain lateralization, and to what extent?

3- Context-related responses

Can an animal learn to respond in different ways according to the different contexts? We propose a series of experiments investigating whether day-old domestic chicks can learn to behave differently (for example responding by choosing either the larger or the smaller number), in different environments.


I WOULD CONSIDER PROPOSALS FOR THE INVESTIGATION OF COGNITIVE ABILITIES IN OTHER ANIMAL SPECIES.
