Out of Our Minds - A Short Film About Comparative Cognition, Kate Webbink, 21mins

Comparative cognition is a relatively new scientific field which addresses the mechanics of the brain from a cross-species perspective, asking how memory and intelligence function in different animals. In Out of Our Minds, Kate Webbink, of The Field Museum, goes on a science road trip, travelling from Montana to New York – with stops at major universities in between – to ask scientists about the challenges they face, the limitations of the field, and what exactly they’re trying to achieve. An entertaining and illucidating short film with obvious links to UB's Change My Mind project.
