About This Project
Humans are one of the most successful species because we learned how to cooperate. Building a house or finding food often requires cooperation. We know that primates, ravens, and humans can spontaneously learn to play a cooperation game to maximize their reward earning $10 together instead of $1 alone. We don't know if marine mammals exhibit this cooperative behavior. This study will explore the decision-making processes and the importance of cooperation in a dolphin's world.
