The Alex studies : cognitive and communicative abilities of grey parrots by Irene M Pepperberg( )

30 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and Japanese and held by 1,911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can a parrot understand complex concepts and mean what it says? 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, despite evidence suggesting that species such as jays, crows, and parrots might be capable of more impressive cognitive feats." "Twenty years ago Irene Pepperberg set out to discover whether the results of the pigeon studies necessarily meant that other birds - particularly the large-brained, highly social parrots - were incapable of mastering complex cognitive concepts and the rudiments of referential speech. Her investigation and the bird at its center - a male Grey parrot named Alex - have since become almost as well known as primate studies and their subjects and no less a topic of fierce debate in the field of animal cognition. This book represents the long-awaited synthesis of the studies constituting one of the landmark experiments in modern comparative psychology."--Jacket
Animal cognition in nature : the convergence of psychology and biology in laboratory and field by Russell P Balda( )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 1,542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the editors bring together results from studies on all kinds of animals to show how thinking on many behaviors as truly cognitive processes can help us to understand the biology involved. Taking ideas and observations from the while range of research into animal behavior leads to unexpected and stimulating ideas. A space is created where the work of field ecologists, evolutionary ecologists and experimental psychologists can interact and contribute to a greater understanding of complex animal behavior, and to the development of a new and coherent field of study

Ni bao zhong, wo ai ni : wo he wo de cong ming ying wu ai li si by Irene M Pepperberg( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On September 6, 2007, an African Grey parrot named Alex died prematurely at age thirty-one. His last words to his owner, Irene Pepperberg, were "You be good. I love you."What would normally be a quiet, very private event was, in Alex's case, headline news. Over the thirty years they had worked together, Alex and Irene had become famous?two pioneers who opened an unprecedented window into the hidden yet vast world of animal minds. Alex's brain was the size of a shelled walnut, and when Irene and Alex first met, birds were not believed to possess any potential for language, consciousness, or anything remotely comparable to human intelligence. Yet, over the years, Alex proved many things. He could add. He could sound out words. He understood concepts like bigger, smaller, more, fewer, and none. He was capable of thought and intention. Together, Alex and Irene uncovered a startling reality: We live in a world populated by thinking, conscious creatures. The fame that resulted was extraordinary. Yet there was a side to their relationship that never made the papers. They were emotionally connected to one another. They shared a deep bond far beyond science. Alex missed Irene when she was away. He was jealous when she paid attention to other parrots, or even people. He liked to show her who was boss. He loved to dance. He sometimes became bored by the repetition of his tests, and played jokes on her. Sometimes they sniped at each other. Yet nearly every day, they each said, "I love you." Alex and Irene stayed together through thick and thin?despite sneers from experts, extraordinary financial sacrifices, and a nomadic existence from one univer?sity to another. The story of their thirty-year adventure is equally a landmark of scientific achievement and of an unforgettable human-animal bond
APA handbook of comparative psychology( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The handbook represents an effort to update the knowledge in the field by making an all-inclusive attempt at gathering the major findings of our discipline as well as the theories and the schools of thought that have developed over the years. I encouraged contributors to be as taxonomically broad as possible, with the idea that such a broad base is one of the main strengths of our discipline. Consequently, this handbook offers an exhaustive coverage of cognition, behavior, learning, and physiology--all packaged and presented under the umbrella of evolutionary theory. It combines classical findings with the current and new directions in the field, and in doing so, it attempts to correct as much as possible the inevitable decalage that occurs between what is published in journals and what is included in textbooks"--Introduction.
