Can a chimpanzee calculate probability?

Can a fly learn without a head? Do bumblebees learn from other bumblebees? And do chimpanzees calculate probability when they look for fruit? These questions and more are answered in the course Cognitive Strategies in the Animal Kingdom. 

What are the similarities and differences between the brains of humans and animals and the way we make decisions? This six-part lecture series, developed by the University of Amsterdam, will cover the results of the latest research on animal psychology. On October 28 you are welcome to attend the symposium, where the students will present their ideas for behavioral research in ARTIS.
