    Department of Psychology, University of New Hampshire, Conant Hall, 10 Library Way, Durham, New Hampshire 03824, USA
    Curr Biol 17:336-40. 2007
    ..This result reveals that a nonmammalian visual system that is different anatomically from the human visual system is also biased to recognize objects from nonaccidental statistics...

    Brett Gibson
    Department of Psychology, University of New Hampshire, NH, USA
    Behav Processes 80:278-87. 2009
    ..Our conclusion is that while the study of food caching and spatial memory in birds has been a very good model of a program of research that has addressed Tinbergen's questions, additional work remains...

    J Comp Psychol 121:130-44. 2007
    ..The rats' performance declined during transformation tests using a triangular array, indicating that the rats may have encoded the primary axis of the object array, rather than local cues, to direct their search...

    Brett M Gibson
    University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
    Learn Behav 33:296-308. 2005

    Brett M Gibson
    University of New Hampshire, Psychology Department, Conant Hall, Durham, NH 0382, USA
