Grad student Daniel Horschler reports that members of the Arizona Canine Cognition Center group attended the International Conference on Comparative Cognition in Melbourne Beach, Florida last week and gave a few talks. Here’s a link to the conference program. The SoA presenters were:
Gitanjali Gnanadesikan, Evan MacLean, and Brian Hare, “Estimating the Heritability of Cognitive Traits across Dog Breeds”
Emily Bray, Gitanjali Gnanadesikan, Daniel Horschler, and Evan MacLean, “Early emerging cognition in 9-week-old puppies”
Evan MacLean, Emily Bray, Gitanjali Gnanadesikan, and Daniel Horschler, "Heritability of Cognitive Traits in a Pedigreed Dog Population”
Daniel Horschler, Laurie Santos, and Evan MacLean, “Do non-human primates really represent others’ ignorance?”
Daniel also recently received the Herbert E. Carter Travel Award ($600) from the Cognitive Science Graduate Interdisciplinary Program and a UA Graduate and Professional Student Council Travel Grant ($750) to fund travel to/from the conference, and his talk (“Do non-human primates really represent others’ ignorance?”) was selected as a finalist for the Ron Weisman Outstanding Student Presentation award.
