In the fourth installment of our podcast series from the conference on the Evolutionary Origins of the Human Mind at the International Institute for Advanced Studies (IIAS), we spoke with Dr. Dora Biro, Royal Society University Research Fellow, and soon to become tenured member of faculty, in the Department of Zoology at the University of Oxford.
We chatted with Dr. Biro about her exceptional work with cognition, social information use and cultural transmission of knowledge in chimpanzees, in both the laboratory and in the wild, as well as her studies of information flow and collective decision-making in flocks of homing pigeons. Find out more about Dr. Biro and her work on her profile at the University of Oxford.
