A foremost scholar in comparative cognition-a discipline closely connected to behavioral biology, evolution, and cognitive neuroscience-author Sara J. Shettleworth delivers a focused treatment of the essentials in writing that is both lucid and captivating. Brief, yet brimming with detail, Fundamentals of Comparative Cognition conveys the richness and complexity of this diverse field while addressing two fundamental questions: "What makes us uniquely human?" and "What do our minds share with other creatures?"
