  • Development of Pecking in Ring Doves

    The development of pecking in ring doves is described and analyzed as a model system for understanding the roles of learning in behavioral development. Ring dove squab go from complete dependence on their parents to independent feeding during the third and fourth week post-hatch. They learn to identify food and to consume it through their interaction with food and their parents. This chapter describes experiments that analyze the specific learning mechanisms involved in the development of pecking and what it is that squabs learn from their experience.

  • Hierarchical Stimulus Processing by Pigeons

    Understanding how visual stimuli are perceived, discriminated, recognized, and ultimately come to control behavior is one of the central issues in animal cognition. This chapter reviews recent experiments from my laboratory looking at how pigeons process hierarchically-arranged information presented at different spatial scales. Results are presented from three different paradigms that tested a variety of texture stimuli, hierarchical figural stimuli, and dynamic object-like stimuli.

  • Object Recognition

    This chapter addresses a number of fundamental issues relating to object recognition, concentrating particularly on an avian species, the pigeon. The task is to determine whether the basic process of object recognition in pigeons is at all similar to the most probable process that has been proposed for humans. In order to demonstrate the conditions under which object recognition may or may not occur, a number of illustrated examples will be provided.
