Cognition, Neuroscience and Behaviour

The cognitive, neural, and hormonal bases of behaviour are central to this key research area. The strengths of the research area include its broad comparative perspective, diverse model systems, and research at multiple explanatory levels, from cells to social groups. The research focuses on the evolution of cognitive processes, the influence of environmental factors on behavioural phenotypes, and the interaction of behaviour, genetic, and physiological factors.

Speakers: Thomas Bugnyar and Eva Millesi
