Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The investigation of human and non-human behaviour has been the focus of many related fields (e.g. behavioural biology, psychology, cognitive sciences, anthropology). Despite often closely-related research objectives, exchange between the disciplines has sometimes been hampered by differences in used paradigms and terminology. Moreover, although the great value of comparative behavioural research has been well established, comparing behaviour across species, contexts, and/or cultures remains a challenge. This interdisciplinary lecture will use selected examples from social cognition to highlight the differences and similarities in methodologies, analytical strategies, and interpretational frameworks of closely related fields of behavioural research and explore the advantages and pitfalls of comparative behavioural research.

This course will be held in English.
