The Alex studies cognitive and communicative abilities of grey parrots by Irene M Pepperberg ( )
20 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 1,401 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 ( )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 1,098 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

In search of King Solomon's ring studies on the cognitive and communicative abilities of grey parrots by Irene M Pepperberg ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
For almost 30 years, I have used a modeling technique to train Grey parrots to use English speech referentially, and then I use this to test their cognitive abilities. The oldest bird, Alex, labels over 50 exemplars, 7 colors, 5 shapes, quantities to 6, 3 categories (color, shape, material), and he uses "no", "come here", "wanna go X" and "want Y" (X and Y are appropriate location or item labels). He combines labels to identify, request, comment upon or refuse more than 100 items and alter his environment. He processes queries to judge category, relative size, quantity, presence or absence of similarity/difference in attributes, and show label comprehension. He semantically separates labeling from requesting. Recently, he demonstrated his understanding of a zero-like concept and simple addition He thus exhibits capacities once presumed limited to humans or nonhuman primates. Studies on this bird and other Greys show that parrots given training that lacks such aspects as reference, functionality, social interaction will fail to learn referential English speech. Other data suggest that the extent of learning depends on the form of input. Studies on how parrots acquire an allospecific code may elucidate mechanisms of other forms of exceptional learning: learning unlikely in the normal course of development but that can occur under specific conditions
