Welcome to the Collective Cognition Lab

in the Psychology and Biology Departments at Wilfrid Laurier University

Our research combines empirical studies of collective behavior and learning on (currently) fish and snakes, and theoretical work on the mechanisms of collective learning and decision-making. We are particularly interested in how occurring (and evolving) in a group shapes different types of cognition. Read more.
