SummaryEdit

Description
English: My research project concerns theoretical modelling of empirical data, from the fields of cognitive ethology and cognitive neuroscience, in support to the claim that nonhuman primates can ascribe intentions in the context of individual and collective action planning. In particular, I am interested in the function that episodic memory plays in enabling intention ascription. I have had the unique opportunity to interact with the research team of Tetsuro Matsuzawa, a leading scholar in the study of primate cognition. The Primate Research Institute of Kyoto University is the hosting institution of the CICASP, the Center for International Collaboration and Advanced Studies in Primatology. The scope of the visit has been that of getting acquainted with the research methods of the CICASP. This center is well-known for its highly innovative research techniques, developed in order to carry out scientific observations of wild Japanese monkeys, endeavored to look for the evolutionary basis of human society by the careful study of monkey societies in their natural habitat. Field research is here combined with studies in cognitive neuroscience. As a result, the synergy of laboratory and field research aims at an olistic understanding of primate cognition.
