Editorial Reviews


" invaluable resource for all working or being interested in the wide field of comparative psychology and neuroscience."--European Journal of Neurology

"Excellent book...Highly recommended."--Choice

"Those who study comparative cognition find themselves in a particularly prosperous time . . . A diversity of available species to study, opportunities for increased national and international collaboration, and technological advances offer us a greater opportunity for data collection and dissemination than at any time in history. The present book attests to how these opportunities can produce compelling research programs that serve as excellent models for the future of comparative cognition." --Michael J. Beran in PsycCRITIQUES

" outstanding collection of chapters by an exceptional group of researchers. A unique aspect is the strong reliance on experimental science in each of the research programs. One chapter after another provides a critical analysis of the state of knowledge about a fascinating cognitive ability . . . Everyone interested in the cognitive and intellectual capacities of animals should read this book."--Peter Balsam, Barnard College and Columbia University

"This book is a gem . . . It will be a 'must read' for students and scientists who are curious about the state of the art of the modern science of comparative cognition."--Mark E. Bouton, University of Vermont

". . . sure to become a major landmark in long history of this continually evolving field." --Michael Domjan, University of Texas

"In this collection, Wasserman (psychology, University of Iowa) and Zentall (Psychology University of Kentucky) present reports of studies done on a variety of animals, including pigeons, mice, monkeys and dolphins...While these studies are intended for professionals, the conclusions are clearly stated for anyone interested in the subject." -- Shannon Hendrickson, Editor, Book News Inc.
