Special Issue "Advances in Animal Cognition"
A special issue of Behavioral Sciences (ISSN 2076-328X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2016).
This Special Issue solicits papers reflecting recent methodological or conceptual advances in the field of animal cognition, broadly defined. Topics can cover any area of cognitive processing involving any species. Examples of topics include the application of cognitive studies to animal welfare, the neurological underpinnings of cognitive capacities, and novel experimental tests of basic cognitive abilities. Comparisons of cognitive abilities across species, including humans, are especially welcome. Empirical research papers that demonstrate novelty in their approach, as well as review papers outlining novel theoretical approaches to a topic are welcome. Authors may also contribute perspectives papers that outline current issues and potential solutions within the field of animal cognition.Jennifer Vonk
