Scientific curiosity

A major reason for studying cognitive abilities in a particular species is to understand more about that species. Scientific curiosity drives many investigations of animal cognition. As we attempt to describe and understand natural phenomena, the question of the animal mind has increasingly been a subject of scientific investigation. New theoretical approaches and innovative methodologies have led to significant advances in the past 20 years in understanding how animals think. The study of animal cognition has been added to the study of animal behavior, ecology, and evolution as we continue to investigate the biology of our world.
