    About This Project

    Humans plan their speech ahead of time, but can animals do the same? What happens when an animal is ready to vocalize, but gets interrupted? We will examine whether meerkats prepare for calling, and whether they ever change their minds about it at the very last moment. We hypothesize that changes in breathing patterns can be used to detect and measure call intention. Showing these phenomena in animals would suggest that animal calls are highly intentional and are under complex cognitive control.
