David Edelman, Ph.D., is a visiting scholar in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College and former lecturer at the Department of Psychology University of California, San Diego. In this episode, Edelman gives us a peek into his research on the consciousness of non-human animals. Edelman’s primary interest is visual perception and cognition in octopuses.


Listen in to learn about some of the octopus’ sophisticated behavioral adaptations and find out why Edelman considers it a profoundly wonderful model organism for his research.
