 Prof. Huber's research is devoted to the study of cognition in a comparative, biological framework. With its roots in ethology, and a strong combination of field and laboratory experimentation, he is applying the comparative method to a wide variety of organisms (from reptiles, amphibians, fish, birds to mammals). Despite long-lasting interests in physical/technical cognition, perceptual cognition, and the evolution of cognition, his current research focus is social cognition, with special emphasis on the mechanisms underlying learning through conspecific observation. Applied work focuses on human-animal interactions and ethical issues.
