Event description

Description

Join Dr. Noam Miller for a look at how the collective behaviour of fish shapes their learning and decision making.

Noam's research ranges from comparative cognition to behavioral ecology but his primary interest is in how existing in a group shapes individual cognitive functions such as learning and decision making. He maintains a blog on fish cognition called >3s.

Noam joined the Collective Cognition Lab at Wilfred Laurier University in the summer of 2014. Before that he was a post-doctoral researcher in Iain Couzin's lab at Princeton University, in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department. He got his PhD in Psychology from the University of Toronto where he worked with Sara Shettleworth and Robert Gerlai. Before that he got a B.Sc. in Biology from Tel-Aviv University, where he also worked with Ilan Golani.
