Animal cognition encompasses the mental capacities of non-human study of animal conditioning and learning used in this field was developed from comparative has also been strongly influenced by research in ethology, behavioral ecology, and evolutionary psychology; the alternative name cognitive ethology is sometimes used.

Many behaviors associated with the term. This volume of the acclaimed Handbook of Perception and Cognition, Second Edition, reviews such basic models as Pavlovian conditioning as well as more modern models of animal memory and social cognition.

Sure to represent a benchmark of a vast literature from diverse disciplines, this reference work is a useful addition to any library devoted. The fifty-seven original essays in this book provide a comprehensive overview of the interdisciplinary field of animal cognition.

The contributors include cognitive ethologists, behavioral ecologists, experimental and developmental psychologists, behaviorists, philosophers, neuroscientists, computer scientists and modelers, field biologists, and others.

In this book, the editors bring together results from studies on all kinds of animals to show how thinking on many behaviors as truly cognitive processes can help us to understand the biology involved. Taking ideas and observations from the while range of research into animal behavior leads to unexpected and stimulating ideas.

Comparing animal cognition to our own is tricky business. Animals have differently tuned senses and use them in sometimes radically different ways than we do. In some cases, there simply is no commeasurability.

Animal Cognition presents a lucid and comprehensive overview of cognitive processes in animals--bees and wasps, cats and dogs, dolphins and sea otters, pigeons, titmice, and chimpanzees--and offers a novel discussion of the ways in which Piagetian concepts may be used to develop models for the study of animal cognition.

In this post I want to focus on books that discuss animal cognition. The Oxford dictionary defines cognition as ‘the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience and the senses.’ Too often, animal behavior is explained solely through instinct, because anthropomorphizing is a big taboo both in.
