This page is about our research in aquaria, which we carry out at National Aquarium in Baltimore.
Studies at the national aquarium allow us to conduct experiments to assess the cognitive capabilities of bottlenose dolphin through experimental work. At the Aquarium, we have implemented a 24/7 monitoring system in order to observe the behavior of the animals from all angles. Additionally, an advanced hydrophone array allows us to localize vocalizations from all points in the tank. Currently, we are investigating the abilities of dolphins to perform tasks in high synchronicity, even when these tasks are novel. We are also interested in elucidating the spatial associations between individuals, and how individuals travel together according to the degree to which they are related to one another.
