Monthly Meetings

February 4 - Altruism in American Birds

Please join us on Wednesday, February 4 for a presentation entitled "Altruism in Birds" by Dr. Indrikis Krams, a visiting Fulbright Scholar from Daugavpils University in Latvia.  While at UTK, Indrikis is working with graduate students in the Experimental Psychology Program in the Department of Psychology.  His research is focused on the vocal and social complexities in birds and humans.   

How does ornithology inform human psychology? Or vice-versa? Come and find out what's happening at UTK.  Read about Dr. Krams work:  http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Indrikis_Krams
