  • Research interests:
    • My research interests focus on comparative cognition. The question for a comparative study of cognition is this: Do nonhumans species process information in the same way as humans do? To examine this question, my research uses classical and instrumental conditioning procedures to study how humans and laboratory animals encode, select and use contextual, temporal and spatial information to make response decisions. I have been programming computer tasks (in Visual Basic) that can be used to examine conditions under which humans show effects similar to those shown by rats and pigeons (e.g., avoidance task, Molet, Callejas, & Rosas, 2007; spatial task, Molet, Jozefowiez, & Miller, 2010; equivalence task, Molet, Miller, & Zentall, 2011). I also have a strong interest in virtual-environment based research methods relevant to the scientific study of human behaviour.
