PSYC 344 Animal Cognition and Behavior (4)

This course provides an introduction to the interdisciplinary study of animal cognition and behavior from an evolutionary perspective. Note that while humans are animals, this class will primarily focus on various other animal species. We will explore the evolution and function of several processes, including sensation and perception, emotion, concept formation, learning (classical and instrumental conditioning), remembering, reasoning, social cognition, and communication.
