Animal Behavior and Psychology Discussion Watch the discussion recording using the links below.
Science Café New Hampshire and the SEE Science Center’s Science on Tap program are teaming up to celebrate 10 years of bringing people and panelists together for informal, friendly science conversations. On June 15th these two programs are joined to host a virtual discussion where, for the first time, audiences in Concord, Manchester and Nashua will all be invited to discuss a topic together .
The two organizations have chosen an intriguing and fun topic to bring our audiences together to discuss: Animal Behavior and Psychology. Whether it was pets walking across the screen during zoom meetings, news coverage animals taking over locked down cities, or our own observations when spending more time with our pets, during the pandemic, animals came into focus in a new ways. Join us to discuss animal social behavior, communication, human to animal interactions, behavioral health, and more. Ask about how animals are studied and how we can apply knowledge of animal behavior to the benefit of the animals we encounter.
During the event, participants learned from researchers and professional behaviorists and asked them questions directly via Facebook and YouTube. Our panelists included Dr. Katherine Houpt, James Law Professor Emeritus in the Dept. of Clinical Sciences at Cornell University who studies domestic animal welfare and behavior in horses; Dr. LInda Aronson, professional behaviorist working with cats, dogs and horses; Dr. Valerie Chalcraft, animal behaviorist who also studied primates in laboratory settings; and Dr. Leslie Curren of the University of NH, who studies social interaction/behavior in the animal world.
