Podcast: Under the Sea, Inside the Mind
by AMNH on
Beneath the waves, ocean-dwelling animals such as dolphins, whales and manatees lead purposeful lives. In this podcast from the Milstein Science Series, three scientists discuss the results of recent studies on the intelligence and self-awareness in these animals.
Listen to the discussion led by Dr. Lori Marino, senior lecturer in neuroscience and behavioral biology at Emory University; Roger Reep, neurobiology professor at the University of Florida; and Hal Whitehead, professor of cetacean science at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia. The talk was moderated by Melanie Stiassny, Axelrod Research Curator in the Museum’s Department of Ichthyology.
This podcast was recorded at the Museum on March 6th, 2011.
