Animal Intelligence: How We Discover How Smart Animals Really Are

Scientists are finally discovering the cognitive basis of how animals think and why they behave as they do.

Join speaker Edward A. Wasserman, Ph.D. at our EAM series on May 30th for a lively look at some of the ways scientists discover the cognitive capacities of other species.
