Editorial Reviews

Review

"Comparative Cognition provides a clear and comprehensive review and an engaging synthesis of the key topics in this rapidly developing field. Like the other classic textbooks on animal cognition this book integrates knowledge of experimental psychology and evolutionary biology, reflecting the roots of this discipline in comparative psychology and ethology. It also contains a number of novel features, with its enhanced emphasis on both evolutionary function and the underlying neural mechanisms. These include feature boxes that describe key concepts in more detail, and researcher profiles that capture the contribution of some of the major figureheads in the field. A particular highlight is the series of questions at the end of each chapter, which encourage students to think more deeply about the issues raised, and to design experiments to test the competing hypotheses."
Nicola S. Clayton, University of Cambridge

'This book is recommended for library purchases in the life and evolutionary sciences, animal minds, cognitive neurosciences, and the philosophy of mind. I would also like to note that the many detailed neuro-anatomical and evolution-related drawings are alone worth the price of this volume. They are some of the clearest and thought-out technical drawings I have ever seen and will engage the eye at length.' Paul Tibbetts, The Quarterly Review of Biology

Book Description

An undergraduate introduction to cognitive processes across species, integrating classic studies and contemporary research in psychology, biology and neuroscience. Active, engaged learning is encouraged through feature boxes, giving a deeper understanding of topics discussed in the main text. These are supported by end-of-chapter questions and further reading sections.
