About this book

Covering a wide range of key topics, from reasoning and communication to sensation and complex problem-solving, this engagingly-written text presents a comprehensive survey of contemporary research on animal cognition. Written for anyone with an interest in animal cognition, but without a background in animal behaviour, Animal Cognition endeavours to explain what makes animals tick.

With numerous illustrations and including exciting recent studies from many little-studied species (such as the weakly electric African fish), Animal Cognition is ideal for psychology students who are interested in how much of our human cognition is shared by other species, for students of biology who want to know how complex animal behaviour can get, and for all those with an interest in the animal mind.

Media reviews

Reviews of the first edition:

"This book communicates the intriguing facts about animal cognition, and how fascinating it can be to investigate animal minds, without talking down to the reader, exaggerating animals' mental capacities, or implying that outstanding questions have been answered [...] A very unusual combination."
– Professor Cecilia Heyes, University College London

"Wynne writes clearly, engages the reader well, and gives lots of examples and anecdotes but does not sacrifice rigour."
– Professor Michael Corballis, University of Auckland

"Extremely readable, particularly for undergraduates [...] the first book of its kind that is well-suited for an advanced undergraduate course rather than for a graduate course."
– Professor Tom Zentall, University of Kentucky

"An excellent introduction to animal cognition [...] Coverage is impressively thorough [...] Wynne has a delightfully engaging, informal style. It is clear that the author enjoys what he is writing about, and this enjoyment is readily conveyed to the reader."
– Professor John Pearce, Cardiff University
