Are you interested in learning about research occurring within the Concordia community?

Drop by during this week-long event where citizen scientists will have the option of participating in a short and fun task geared to see if we move more like a monkey or squirrel!

This is part of Megan Joyce's research, where she focuses on decision-making strategies in foraging by a large group of Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata) on Awaji Island, Japan. Megan is curious to learn which social and non-social variables most influence the decision-making patterns observed.

Organized by Megan Joyce, Sarah Turner, Ariana Moin, and Veronica Ventulieri!

How can you participate? Join us in person!
