The extension of biology through culture
(2017-07-25) - Journal article,
The modulation of two motor behaviors by persistent sodium currents in Xenopus laevis tadpoles
(2017-07-01) - Journal article,
Persistent sodium currents (INaP) are common in neuronal circuitries and have been implicated in several diseases, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and epilepsy. However, the role of INaP in the regulation of ...
Does social environment influence learning ability in a family-living lizard?
(2017-05) - Journal article,
Early developmental environment can have profound effects on individual physiology, behaviour, and learning. In birds and mammals social isolation during development is known to negatively affect learning ability; yet in ...
Selection to outsmart the germs : the evolution of disease recognition and social cognition
(2017-07) - Journal article,
The emergence of providing care to diseased conspecifics must have been a turning point during the evolution of hominin sociality. On a population level, such care may have minimized the costs of socially transmitted ...
Proto-consonants were information-dense via identical bioacoustic tags to proto-vowels
(2017-02-08) - Journal article,
Why did our ancestors combine the first consonant- A nd vowel-like utterances to produce the first syllable or word? To answer this question, it is essential to know what constituted the communicative function of ...
Social play as joint action : a framework to study the evolution of shared intentionality as an interactional achievement
(2017-12) - Journal article,
Social play has a complex, cooperative nature that requires substantial coordination. This has led researchers to use social games to study cognitive abilities like shared intentionality, the skill and motivation to share ...
Resilience of experimentally-seeded dietary traditions in wild vervets : evidence from group fissions
(2017-10) - Journal article,
Controlled laboratory experiments have delivered extensive and compelling evidence for the diffusion and maintenance of socially learned behavior in primates and other animals. Such evidence is rarer in the wild, but we ...
Lateral entorhinal cortex lesions impair local spatial frameworks
(2017-05-17) - Journal article,
A prominent theory in the neurobiology of memory processing is that episodic memory is supported by contextually gated spatial representations in the hippocampus formed by combining spatial information from medial entorhinal ...
Wearable assistive technologies for autism : opportunities and challenges
(2018-06) - Journal item,
Autism is a lifelong developmental condition that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others. Challenges with typical social engagement, common in the autism experience, can have a significant negative ...
Assessment of intradimensional/extradimensional attentional set-shifting in rats
(2018-06) - Journal item,
The rat intradimensional/extradimensional (ID/ED) task, first described by Birrell and Brown 18 years ago, has become the predominant means by which attentional set-shifting is investigated in rodents: the use of rats in ...
