Professor Marcin Urbaniak

Assoc. Prof. Marcin Urbaniak is a cognitive scientist, working in the area of cognitive ethology, cognitive evolution and zoopsychology. He explores non-human animals' cognitive skills in a comparative light, trying to prove the convergence of complex cognitive abilities in Vertebrata, that exhibit analogous or homologous structures and processes of cognition. He also studies the evolutionary forms of consciousness, learning, and social behaviours in the animal kingdom, with particular emphasis on animal communication and cooperation, mental perception and moral intuition.
