Primate cognition has been historically mostly studied in laboratories, but more and more studies are since then also done in primates’ natural environment. My research focus on social learning - learning from others – which is a basis for traditions and is biased toward specific individuals or behaviours. In my talk, I will present different field-based experiments I conducted in wild vervet monkeys in South Africa to study transmission pathways of new behaviours along with the social acceptance of a robot by monkeys. To finish, I will briefly present a future project starting soon on consistent individual behavioural variation in vervet monkeys’ risk-taking. 


We look forward to seeing you there!
