Today is the second Tuesday of April which can mean only one thing: Periodic Tables! Periodic Tables is a monthly event that brings interesting speakers and "where curious adults can meet in a casual setting to discuss the latest science in plain English." Periodic Tables is organized by our friends at the Museum of Life and Science.
When: April 13, 2010 | 7:00 P.M.
Where: Broad Street Café in Durham, NC
Who: Dr. Brian Hare, Assistant Professor in Evolutionary Anthropology at Duke University
More has been discovered about dog intelligence in the last decade than the preceding 100 years. The Duke Canine Cognition Center was founded to continue studying how dogs understand their world, how dogs might have evolved, and how we might help dogs be even more successful at helping people.
Dr. Brian Hare will share some of his work comparing dogs to various species like wolves and chimpanzees. He is also interested in hearing your ideas for dogcentric research questions that you wish they had the answer to.
