The Alex Studies: Cognitive and Communicative Abilities of Grey Parrots

#ad
Harvard University Press #ad - This book represents the long-awaited synthesis of the studies constituting one of the landmark experiments in modern comparative psychology. Barron s Educational Series. Can a parrot understand complex concepts and mean what it says? Since the early 1900s, most studies on animal-human communication have focused on great apes and a few cetacean species.

Experiments performed primarily on pigeons in skinner boxes demonstrated capacities inferior to those of mammals; these results were thought to reflect the capacities of all birds, crows, despite evidence suggesting that species such as jays, and parrots might be capable of more impressive cognitive feats.

The Alex Studies: Cognitive and Communicative Abilities of Grey Parrots #ad - Her investigation and the bird at its center--a male Grey parrot named Alex--have since become almost as well known as their primate equivalents and no less a subject of fierce debate in the field of animal cognition.
