The Institute of Behavioural and Neural Sciences is an interdisciplinary community of researchers who study the behaviour of human beings and other animals from cellular, neural, cognitive and evolutionary perspectives. The Institute brings together faculty members, research staff and students from the Schools of Biology, Psychology, Medicine and Chemistry, with the aim of fostering progress at interfaces of the behavioural and neural sciences.

  • Simulating shifts in taxonomic and functional β-diversity of ray-finned fishes : probing the Mariana disaster 

    Trindade-Santos, Isaac; Eduardo, Anderson Aires; Moyes, Faye; Martinez, Pablo Ariel; Magurran, Anne E.; Gouveia, Sidney F. (2018-10-17) - Journal article
    Environmental catastrophes may precipitate local species extinctions, hence altering community composition (i.e., β-diversity) at the regional scale. Assessments of the impacts of such disturbance may be hindered by the ...
  • An open resource for non-human primate imaging 

    Milham, Michael P.; Ai, Lei; Koo, Bonhwang; Xu, Ting; Amiez, Céline; Balezeau, Fabien; Baxter, Mark G.; Blezer, Erwin L.A.; Brochier, Thomas; Chen, Aihua; Croxson, Paula L.; Damatac, Christienne G.; Dehaene, Stanislas; Everling, Stefan; Fair, Damian A.; Fleysher, Lazar; Freiwald, Winrich; Froudist-Walsh, Sean; Griffiths, Timothy D.; Guedj, Carole; Hadj-Bouziane, Fadila; Ben Hamed, Suliann; Harel, Noam; Hiba, Bassem; Jarraya, Bechir; Jung, Benjamin; Kastner, Sabine; Klink, P.

(2018-10-10) - Journal article
    Non-human primate neuroimaging is a rapidly growing area of research that promises to transform and scale translational and cross-species comparative neuroscience. Unfortunately, the technological and methodological advances ...
  • The effect of attractiveness on food sharing preferences in human mating markets. 

    Stirrat, Michael Robert; Gumert, Michael; Perrett, David Ian (2011-02-28) - Journal article
    The current study explored how physical attractiveness affects food sharing by studying payment preferences for hypothetical romantic dinner dates (a hypothetical mating market). We analyzed payment preferences, self-rated ...
  • High diving metabolic rate indicated by high-speed transit to depth in negatively buoyant long-finned pilot whales 

    Aoki, Kagari; Sato, Katsufumi; Isojunno, Saana; Narazaki, Tomoko; Miller, Patrick J.O. (2017-10-18) - Journal article
    To maximize foraging duration at depth, diving mammals are expected to use the lowest cost optimal speed during descent and ascent transit and to minimize the cost of transport by achieving neutral buoyancy. Here, we ...
  • Mate choice intensifies motor signalling in Drosophila 

    Debelle, Allan; Courtiol, Alexandre; Ritchie, Michael G.; Snook, Rhonda R. (2017-11) - Journal article
    Mate choice has the potential to act on the evolution of motor performance via its direct influence on motor sexual signals. However, studies demonstrating this are rare. Here, we performed an in-depth analysis of Drosophila ...
