Go Small White! Rat Basketball in Psychology 450

When people think of UK basketball, they tend to think of Wildcats, not lab rats... except for students in Fall 2012's Psychology 450: Learning. In the class, students used clickers and treats to train rats to pick up and 'dunk' a small ball to demonstrate how learning occurs. In this podcast, we interviewed some students from the class and watched some rat basketball from the sidelines with Kristina Pattison, the instructor.

How Animals Think: The Cognitive Process with Kristina Pattison

Though we might think that our thoughts and reactions are what 'separate us from the animals,' it turns out that humans, dogs, and pigeons have some cognitive similarities. Kristina Pattison, a doctoral student in the Department of Psychology, has been working with animals for most of her life, and her research reflects that. In this podcast, she discusses the types of research she does, as well as some practical applications - for the animals she works with, and for us humans, too.
