Description
Studying the brain’s processing of information is necessary to better understand how communication signals influence behaviours. However, the methods classically used in brain studies can be applied only to a limited number of model species. Artificial intelligence (AI) offers novel perspectives to model these neural processes and thus to investigate them outside laboratories. In this project, we will use AI to explore the links between information processing in the brain and complex behaviours expressed by non-human primates in natural environments. We will study the influence of face perception on socio-sexual behaviours in mandrills (Mandrillus sphinx), a pri...
