Primate cognition in crisis: looking at the relationship between decision-making and emotions

Given the state of permanent crisis in regards to species extinction and the complex relationship between human and non-human primates, especially within the realm of scientific inquiry on primate cognition, I propose to work in an open-ended dialogue with researchers in the field of cognitive neuroscience on four related topics:

 

(1) the creation of videos for the enrichment of lab animals,

(2) cross-species neurocinematics : investigating how human and non-human minds read signs,

(3) the formation of identity and affiliation between species, especially among scientists who work with animals,

(4) primate cognition in crisis: looking at the relationship between decision-making and emotions.

 

Depending on researchers’ desire to collaborate, I will either produce art project(s) described in further detail in my proposal, and/or a documentary about the dialogue itself.
