The ability to learn is something as humans take for granted. It’s such an automatic response, we don’t really spend very long thinking about. Why do we learn? What guides our learning? Who do we choose learn from? These big questions are tricky to answer but lizards can give us clues on understanding the evolution of learning. Fonti Kar, a PhD student from University of New South Wales will discuss some of the latest research from the Lizard Lab on lizard cognition in some iconic Australian species.
