1. Introduction to ethology (animal/human behaviour). Human ethology is an integral part of ethology, which is the biological study of animal behaviour. In this lecture the basic concepts of ethology are discussed in relation to human ethology. We also present an overview on the development of this field and explain how the interaction between ethology and psychology generated a novel discipline of studying human behaviour. We present an integrative approach to behaviour by discussing the importance of studying function, mechanism, development and evolution of behaviour in parallel.. 2. The study of human behaviour: Methods. Methodological issues will be discussed as humanethology is based on the comparative study of humans and related animals (apes), on the study of human behavioural development in infants and children, and on intercultural studies. The ethological methods of describing the behavioural phenotype in humans will be discussed with regard to the challenges from neuroscience and ...

Confirmation bias is the tendency of observers to see what they expect to see while conducting scientific research. Although confirmation bias has been well-studied by psychologists in the context of qualitative judgments, it has been much less studied with respect to the kinds of quantitative observations made by behavioral biologists. We carried out two experiments that used multiple observers of the aggression and foraging behaviors of red-backed salamanders (Plethodon cinereus) to determine whether behavioral observations were influenced by the a priori expectations of observers. In both experiments, one group of observers was given a specific set of expectations with respect to sex differences in salamander behavior, while a second group was given the opposite set of expectations. In one experiment, observers collected data on variable sets of live salamanders, while in the other experiment, observers collected data from identical videotaped trials. Across experiments and observed ...

Comparative cognition has been an active field for over 100 years. The field was an active interest of George Romanes as well as past luminaries in ethology and experimental psychology such as C. Lloyd Morgan, Tolman and Thorndike. Early studies focussed on mammals and non-human primates but rapidly expanded to include other vertebrate and invertebrate species, including birds, fish, flies, ants, bees, and spiders. The advent of behavioural ecology reinforced ethologys tradition of elegant field studies designed to explore memory for food caches, navigation, communication, tool use, identification of conspecifics, and many other matters. In the laboratory, these animals now push levers for food, navigate mazes, or respond to images on computer screens in discrimination, attention, memory and counting experiments. For example, zebrafish have been shown to perform on tasks of executive function, bumblebees have been shown to perform reversal learning and matching to sample and paper wasps have shown
Animal research can include psychology (the study of the mind), ethology (the study of behaviour) and physiology (for example measuring something like cortisol levels) The physiology and the ethology need to be considered together so that you can tell whether a rise in cortisol levels is due to increased stress or increased excitement for example. Within these three areas, you can record observable actions and interpret them. Computers help here as they can cope with large levels of data. This has led to research such as EquiFACS, which looks at equine anatomy by recording minute movements of muscle. This initially started by looking at humans but has moved on to other animals. Similarly, the Horse Grimace Scale was born from research that started with rodents but now looks at a way of measuring how much pain a horse is in. Meanwhile equine motion has fascinated us for years, from the earliest cave paintings to the present day ...
Our results show that both the pleasantness and attractiveness ratings given to axillary odours were lowest during menstruation and peaked in the follicular phase when the probability of conception is highest. The opposite pattern was seen for odour intensity (i.e. it was most intense during the menstrual phase and the least intense during the follicular phase). It was demonstrated for the first time that axillary odour itself may carry information about womens fertility status. These findings confirm the results of Singh & Bronstad (2001) who, using a T-shirt method, found the attractiveness to be significantly higher during the follicular phase compared with the luteal phase. However, from the study of Singh & Bronstad (2001), it is not clear whether all women wore T-shirts in their follicular phase first or whether the order of collection was randomized. It is well documented that attractiveness correlates negatively with the intensity of odour, which becomes lighter with the length of ...
Tinbergens Legacy in Behaviour: Sixty Years of Landmark Stickleback Papers. This publication lines vital medical advances in ethology, evolutionary biology, ecology, ecotoxicology and developmental genetics made attainable throughout the stickleback version through a range of key papers released within the first 60 years of Behaviour in addition to statement and retrospective essays.. In a flurry of post-war productiveness, Niko Tinbergen re-established his lab in Leiden, wrote landmark papers and his well-known ebook The research of Instinct, and based the magazine Behaviour to serve the burgeoning box of ethology. Tinbergen and his senior assistant, Jan van Iersel, released their vintage paper, Displacement reactions within the three-spined stickleback, within the first factor of his new magazine in 1948. Stickleback are actually a strong version within the fields of behavioural ecology, evolutionary biology, developmental genetics, and ecotoxicology - a unprecedented improvement for ...
Organisms have needs ranging from mere survival through self-actualization (e.g., reproduction), frequently nested within each other such that more basic needs must be satisfied first. Among these needs, the continual working towards the maintenance of stability may be the highest priority. It is from this point of apparent self-organization that organisms (and other systems?) can most efficiently develop and grow and persevere in the face of change, both intrinsic change and change imposed by outside forces. CHANGE and CONSERVATISM. Animals attempt to maintain stability by compensating for internal and external change; this occurs at levels from chemistry through behavior, but different kinds of compensation occur at each level. Within the adaptive zone there is a characteristic breadth of activity within which only modest compensation is invoked.. ...

Recently, the interest in animal cognition has increased and become one of the most important fields within ethology, psychology, ecology and evolutionary biology and the animal cognition course covers all the current trends concerning major theoretical and practical aspects of animal cognition and learning. The lectures provide careful examination of animal communication and language, learning, social learning, memory, neurobiology, the practical study of cognition and learning, and the link between ecology and cognition from an evolutionary viewpoint. The education consists mainly of lectures, group work and seminars but you will also do an experimental study of animal cognition where you formulate a relevant hypothesis and plan and carry out an empirical study to test the hypothesis. ...
In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that temporal repetition rates influence how sound experiences shape cortical representations of the sound. All animals in the fast, slow, and ethological groups of animals were exposed to a 7 kHz tone of the same total acoustic energy, and yet the sensory experiences had completely different effects: a 40% increase in 7 kHz representations for the ethological group but not for the fast or the slow group. Furthermore, exposing developing animals to two tones (5 and 15 kHz) presented at two different rates (fast and ethological, respectively) lead to the over-representation of only the tone presented at the ethological rate. These results indicate that temporal repetition rates of sensory stimuli have a strong impact on experience-dependent plasticity. Earlier studies of sound exposure-induced cortical plasticity mostly used repetition rates similar to our ethological rate, and robust increases in representations of the exposed stimulus were observed ...

Raphaël Jeanson obtained a PhD in ethology in 2003. After two post-doctoral fellowships abroad, he was recruited as a research fellow at the CNRS and joined the CRCA in 2005. He is currently Director of Research at the CNRS and deputy director of the CRCA.. His research focuses on the study of social behaviours in arthropods. His work combines experimental and theoretical approaches to identify the behavioural rules involved in the maintenance of social cohesion, the production of cooperative behaviours and the transitions between different levels of social organization. He is particularly interested in understanding the role of behavioural variability in the emergence of division of labour in colonies of social insects. Another part of his research is devoted to social transitions in spiders.. ...
In the past decade, the field of comparative cognition has grown and thrived. No less rigorous than purely behavioristic investigations, examinations of animal intelligence are useful for scientists and psychologists alike in their quest to understand the nature and mechanisms of intelligence. Extensive field research of various species has yielded exciting new areas of research, integrating findings from psychology, behavioral ecology, and ethology in a unique and wide-ranging synthesis of theory and research on animal cognition. This publication contains sections on perception and illusion, attention and search, memory processes, spatial cognition, conceptualization and categorization, problem solving and behavioral flexibility, and social cognition processes including findings in primate tool usage, pattern learning, and counting. The authors have incorporated findings and theoretical approaches that reflect the current state of the field of comparative cognition.

Karen M. Davis, PhD. started her interest in animal behavior as an undergraduate at Purdue University by studying and working with socialized wolves at Wolf Park in Battleground, IN. She learned about ethology and wolf behavior from Dr. Klinghammer and eventually hand raised her first set of wolf pups. She continued to learn about training and animal behavior as a zookeeper and later studied crayfish aggression for her Masters with Dr. Robert Huber in Bowling Green, OH. Then she moved on to study cognition and behavior of turtles with Dr. Gordon Burghardt at the University of Tennessee. Her PhD work included training for turtles to visual discrimination tasks in order to study their learning and memory capabilities. Presently she is teaching Comparative Animal Behavior and is conducting post-doctoral research on the comparative development of canine play with Julie Albright DMV and Dr. Gordon Burghardt at the University of Tennessee. Karens applied experience includes training a variety of ...

By Keith Loria. Veterinarians agree that pet behavior problems are on the rise because animal owners tend to wait too long before seeking qualified professional help. What might begin as a simple training issue becomes more serious when owners inadvertently make the problem worse by trying to resolve it based on poor advice.. Understanding and working with behavior is no small task, said Don Hanson, co-owner and director of behavior services and training at Green Acres Kennel Shop in Bangor, Maine. It is a field that requires knowledge in a wide variety of areas including ethology, operant conditioning, classical conditioning and more. It is not something one can expect to learn in a one- or two-day seminar.. The No. 1 issue in any study thats been done on the topic is aggression.. Nicholas H. Dodman, BVMS, director of the animal behavior program at the Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, noted that different types of aggression require different treatments. The most ...

My research concerns using patterns in behaviour to earlier detect good and poor welfare states or events. In the modern world computing technology is used for surveillance of human behaviour. By looking at the patterns of peoples movements from CCTV footage, computing systems can detect those about to commit antisocial behaviour, violent acts or contemplating suicide. The main advantage of such techniques is that they can predict such unpleasant events before they happen. This means some of these events can be prevented. I apply the study of patterns of behaviour to animals. I use statistical and computing techniques, but am very much grounded in ethology. Prediction of positive or negative welfare states and events using computing technology is likely to become increasingly important as the hundreds of billions of animals in human care increases further still. It is important that this area is led by an understanding of animal behaviour and welfare rather than the availability of technology. ...

Lorenz is recognized as one of the founding fathers of the field of ethology, the study of animal behavior. He is best known for his discovery of the principle of attachment, or imprinting, through which in some species a bond is formed between a new born animal and its caregiver. This principle had been discovered by Douglas Spalding in the 19th century, and Lorenzs mentor Oskar Heinroth had also worked on the topic, but Lorenzs description of Prägung, imprinting, in nidifugous birds such as greylag geese in his 1935 book Der Kumpan in der Umwelt des Vogels (The Companion in the Environment of Birds) became the foundational description of the phenomenon.[12] Here, Lorenz used Jakob von Uexkülls concept of Umwelt to understand how the limited perception of animals filtered out certain phenomena with which they interacted instinctively. For example, a young goose instinctively bonds with the first moving stimulus it perceives, whether it be its mother, or a person. Lorenz showed that this ...

The conference will start with a reflection on post-anthropocentrism by redefining intelligence (human, animal and plant intelligence), agency and sentience. An in-depth consideration will include the role of fungi: mycelium, the Internet of trees and yeasts. Microbial agency will be explored via the phenomenon of quorum sensing and biofilms, proposing a micro-subjectivity. There will be contributions on the microbiome and holobiome, taking into consideration the human as nonhuman. We want to open up a discussion to endosymbiosis and sympoiesis, reflecting symbiotic relationships, horizontal gene transfer and the role of Lynn Margulis in 21st century Biology and Science and Technology Studies. Finally, the conference will discuss nonhuman perspectives under threat and propose an ethology for the techno-scientific era ...

What are the scientific, moral, philosophical and political implications of these findings? How might these lines of investigation influence our understanding of evolution and morality? Should species, or individuals within certain species, who display such a sense of morality be given greater moral consideration or status than those who do not? Why or why not? In which ways are the notions of humanity and animality challenged by these recent claims? This workshop welcomes presentations wrestling with beastly morality from any ...

Not only are SM and fetishism natural parts of human diversity. SM-type behavior is known even in the animal world where Ford & Beach (1951) contend that biting and aggressive behavior are common. Kinsey et al. (1953) found SM-type behavior prevalent in animal cultures. They noted that twenty-four different mammals other than humans bite during coitus, and Gebhard (1976:163) concluded that from a phylogenetic viewpoint, it is no surprise to find sadomasochism in human beings. According to Bagemihl (1999) the animal kingdom embraces a whole spectrum of sexual behaviour like different kinds of fetishism, transgenderism, erotic biting and even non-violent play-fights.. Ethology: Sign Stimuli.. Research by Tinbergen and others showed that stimuli stronger than the naturally appearing sign stimulus may be more effective in releasing behavior. For example, oyster catchers and other birds prefer to sit on a huge super-normal egg rather than on a normal-sized egg. This phenomenon is seen in other ...
Birds in Science. Gone are the days when animals were classified to taxon based solely on bone structure (osteology), body structure (morphometrics) or behavior (ethology), or some combination of these characters. Currently, scientists have a suite of powerful tools for classifying creatures to taxon, and analyses using a combination of these methods is allowing us to come to a deeper understanding of all animal life. As a result of using these techniques, a new species of frogmouth has been reported, and it was under our very noses all along.. Urban European robins living in noisy areas sing at night because they are more likely to be heard, according to research published recently. Scientists in the north of England have discovered that the birds have adapted their behavior to cope with the pressing demands of modern city life. The study, which appears in the journal, Biology Letters, disproves the myth that some robins sing at night because they believe street lighting is daylight.. Alameda ...

This approach is concerned with designing robots that function like biological systems, hence they are based on the natural sciences (biology, zoology and ethology) and robotics. Given that biological systems perform many complex processing tasks with maximum efficiency, provide a good reference for implementing artificial systems that perform tasks that living things do naturally (interpretation of sensory information, learning, movement, coordination, and so on. ) [Ros, et al, 2002]. Although it is possible to obtain different degrees of biologically inspired (from a vague resemblance to an acceptable reply), the ultimate goal is to make machines and systems increasingly similar to the original [Dario, 2005].. The advantage of building bio-robots is that, as is possible to study all their internal processes, they can be contrasted with the different organs of the animal from which it is based. Currently, scientists develop locusts, flies, dogs, fish, snakes and roaches robotics, in order to ...

The first three editions of Measuring Behaviour were co-authored by Patrick Bateson, known as Pat to his family and friends, and his former graduate student Paul Martin. I had a very special relationship with Pat. Not only was he my father, but I have followed him into the same academic discipline, becoming the second Professor of Ethology in the Bateson family in 2012. I am now immensely proud to replace Pat as co-author of the fourth edition of Measuring Behaviour, continuing the Bateson involvement in this now classic text.

Abstract: The problem investigated in this study was the relationship between the frequencies and durations of selected behavioral categories in a group of two-year-old children and time of day. Specifically, the question asked was, do two-year-olds behaviors change in a free play setting in a nursery school as a function of time of day? It was hypothesized that there would be no group differences in either frequency or duration of behavior at different times of the day in similar preschool settings. The question was investigated by means of ethological, observational techniques, utilizing videotape technology in the data collection process. The subjects observed were eight two-year-old children concurrently enrolled in a morning nursery school program at Centenary United Methodist Church and an afternoon nursery school program in the Department of Child Development and Family Relations at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. There were two major time groups, morning and afternoon, ...

Progressive animal production methods must deliver high quality meat to the consumer, while at the same time promote the welfare of farmed animals. The literature on animal welfare has expanded immensely over recent years, but until now no book has related this area to that of meat science. This book aims to fill that gap. It provides a general review of current knowledge of the welfare of farmed animals, including fish, as this impacts upon meat quality. It represents a textbook for graduate level courses in animal welfare or meat science, but will also be of interest to a wide range of readers in animal, veterinary and food sciences, and in applied ethology.

I have always felt inspired by the natural world around me, and have dedicated my energy and passion to developing an understanding of what makes we humans unique from the other animals. Provided with this information, it may not come as a surprise that I have always been particularly drawn to nonhuman primates.. This page will primarily consist of posts on Evolutionary Biology, Ethology (s.o. Animal Behavior) and Primatology; with the primary, recurring topic being the progress made in my ongoing training of a Common Marmoset Monkey (Callithrix jacchus) named Bubba.. Several years dedicated to studying primate taxonomy, behaviors, ecology and captive husbandry led to my taking on the full-time care of a fellow higher primate. I rescued Bubba from a breeding facility in Missouri in September of 2010, which has since been closed due to the poor conditions in which the animals were kept. When Bubba was initially taken on he was over 1-year-old, missing about 2/3 his tail, highly aggressive ...

N2 - This book offers the first comprehensive yet critical overview of methods used to evaluate interaction between humans and social robots. It reviews commonly used evaluation methods, and shows that they are not always suitable for this purpose. Using representative case studies, the book identifies good and bad practices for evaluating human-robot interactions and proposes new standardized processes as well as recommendations, carefully developed on the basis of intensive discussions between specialists in various HRI-related disciplines, e.g. psychology, ethology, ergonomics, sociology, ethnography, robotics, and computer science. The book is the result of a close, long-standing ...
The ethical treatment of animals is one of serious academic interest today. Specifically, both the practice of animal experimentation and ethical concerns about it have a long history, going virtually back to the ancient Greek period and continuing to the present day. With new breakthroughs in science and technology, it is likely that this practice will be with us for a long time to come. Thus, this book provides an interdisciplinary approach to the topic by utilizing the insights of cognitive ethology, philosophy, science, and Christian theology in order to present a benign approach to the ethical treatment of experimental animals. The reality and existence of animal minds, animal pain, and animal suffering provide the foundation for animal rights, and subsequently, for more positive treatment. Concrete suggestions are offered with regard to more humane animal legislation, improved animal husbandry conditions, as well as concrete guidelines that offset the burdens to animals against the benefits to

Irenäus Eibl-Eibesfeldt. A colleague of Nobel prize winner Konrad Lorenz, Irenaus Eibl-Eibesfeldt, one of the things he concerned himself with was refuting the blank slate theory. He also addressed the issue of human aggression and mankinds frequent desire to transcend the limitations of their own humanity in order to reduce its influence on society. That desire has resulted in both many astounding achievements and some unfortunate consequences. Instinctive parenting, he argued, is a combination of nature and nurture. His insistence that we are indeed a part of the animal kingdom is evident in the title of his highly regarded yet relatively unknown book, Human Ethology.. Breastfeeding is one of the best examples of how nature is designed to elicit nurture. Through the bodys milk production, a win-win situation is created in that nursing relieves the pressure of overfull breasts while simultaneously relieving the pain of the babys empty stomach. Much of what is referred to as instinctive ...
69.128.149.13). Re: Homosexual Pheromones (Uncle Al) Whine? Would have expected better than this type of comment from you, Al. Peer-review, when the topic is either controversial or politically incorrect does not work. Scientific dogma almost always wins out. Heres some added info to consider. My last peer-reviewed pub: an invited review in Neuroendocrinology Letters won a seminal award for the best paper linking neuroendocrinology and ethology. So, I get a best paper award when the model is used to explain heterosexual development, and I dont buy the model from reviewers when the same model is used to explain male homosexual development. Also, there is no need to identify the molecules in this model: the mammalian neuroendocrine response to pheromones of the opposite sex is a key factor; whether or not androstenol alters this neuroendocrine response is of little consequence (though androstenol does appear to do so in women). Preti and Wysocki showed effects of male axillary secretions on ...

He briefly mentioned how grateful he was for the support of the Society following the tsunami and subsequent Fukishima disaster. Then, he described a series of experiments looking at how chicks decide how to feed. They can train chicks to peck for food, and do various manipulations where they reward less food immediately, or more food after a brief delay. He again invoked the Heiligenberg rule (Use the champion animal) to say that chicks were champion feeders. There is high mortality among chicks, and they have to put on weight very quickly in the first few days after hatching ...
en] Birds are anosmic or at best microsmatic... This misbelief persisted until very recently and has strongly influenced the outcome of communication studies in birds, with olfaction remaining neglected as compared to acoustic and visual channels. However, there is now clear empirical evidence showing that olfaction is perfectly functional in birds and birds use olfactory information in a variety of ethological contexts. Although the existence of pheromones has never been formally demonstrated in this vertebrate class, different groups of birds, such as petrels, auklets and ducks have been shown to produce specific scents that could play a significant role in within-species social interactions. Behavioral experiments have indeed demonstrated that these odors influence the behavior of conspecifics. Additionally, in quail, deprivation of olfactory inputs decreases neuronal activation induced by sexual interactions with a female. It seems therefore well established that birds enjoy a functional ...
There is a paucity of ethological studies reporting the fleeing behaviour of prey under persistent attacks by their natural enemies, in contrast with the well-studied case of a single attack, followed by escape [14]. In fact, the number of predator-prey interactions with a rapid sequence of repeated attacks on the same prey by the same predator abound in nature, and older literature provides lengthy descriptions of such interactions, from pompilid wasps pursuing spiders to falcons attacking passerine prey (see Fabres description in [4] for the first case and [15] for the second case). These descriptions often lack crucial information to formalize them as repeated games, and are not quantified. In the following, we first report the findings of a few studies, conducted mainly with lizards [16] and grasshoppers [17] as prey and humans as predators. We then describe one biological interaction in more detail. We use this example to formalize the backbone of our theoretical study and describe in less ...

BackgroundObtaining a complete phenotypic characterization of a freely moving organism is a difficult task, yet such a description is desired in many neuroethological studies. Many metrics currently used in the literature to describe locomotor and exploratory behavior are typically based on average quantities or subjectively chosen spatial and temporal thresholds. All of these measures are relatively coarse-grained in the time domain. It is advantageous, however, to employ metrics based on the entire trajectory that an organism takes while exploring its environment.Methodology/Principal FindingsTo characterize the locomotor behavior of Drosophila melanogaster, we used a video tracking system to record the trajectory of a single fly walking in a circular open field arena. The fly was tracked for two hours. Here, we present techniques with which to analyze the motion of the fly in this paradigm, and we discuss the methods of calculation. The measures we introduce are based on spatial and temporal

In the last consciousness post, which discussed issues with panpsychism and simple definitions of consciousness, I laid out five functional layers of cognition which I find helpful when trying to think about systems that are more or less conscious. Just to recap, those layers are: Reflexes, primal reactions to stimuli. Perception, sensory models of the…

This information must be integrated, interpreted in the light of knowledge gained through prior experience, and a specific behavioural action selected. These processes of sensory integration, learning and memory, decision making, and action selection are the essence of animal cognition and behaviour. Our goal is to provide a biophysical explanation for these processes.
