Presentation: Noninvasive Research on Cetacean Cognition

Lori Marino, Ph.D., is senior lecturer in the Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology program and faculty affiliate in the Center for Ethics at Emory University in Atlanta. Dr. Marino’s research interests include the evolution of brain, intelligence, and self-awareness in cetaceans (dolphins and whales) and other species, human-nonhuman animal relationships, and animal welfare/rights and ethics. She is the author of over 80 publications in these areas, including, in 2001, the first definitive evidence for mirror self-recognition in bottlenose dolphins. She has published several methodological critiques of dolphin-assisted therapy and dolphin-human interaction programs as well. She teaches animal intelligence, brain imaging, animal welfare, and many other related courses. Dr. Marino is currently working on developing a new academic niche for scholar-advocates that combines scientific and scholarly training with animal advocacy.
