Do Animals Think and Feel?
Have you ever wondered what it is like to be a fish? Or a parrot, dolphin, or an elephant? Do they experience thoughts that are similar to ours, or have feelings of grief and love? These are tough questions, but scientists are answering them. Join us in this fascinating webinar by author and contributing correspondent to Science and National Geographic Virgina Morell, M.Sc.
Speaker: Virginia Morell, M.Sc
This webinar was recorded live Webinar November 15th, 2016 and is now available as a recording.
In this talk, students will learn:
- why animals were once regarded as unfeeling robots and how discoveries in the field by well-known scientists, such as Jane Goodall and Cynthia Moss, and others, such as Nigel Franks, Irene Pepperberg, and Jaak Panksepp have changed that perception;
- how scientists have discovered the cognitive abilities of various species from ants to birds to dolphins and canines;
- how they have discovered the emotional side of animals, with a particular focus on elephants; and,
- Why these discoveries matter and why individual animals matter.
