≪Organizer Abstract≫
Most animals, including humans, have eyes and use visual information for survival in nature. Animals navigate, search for preys and predators, socially interact with conspecifics and choose mates, but how they use vision in those contexts might vary widely across the animal kingdom. For example, not all primates possess trichromatic color vision. Some aspects of shape perception differ between birds and primates. Such divergence in visual perception may be attributed to independent evolution under different selection pressures. Speakers of the symposium will present their experimental works in a wide range of taxonomically diverge species, including insects, fish, birds and mammals, covering wide range of topics such as spatial cognition, selective attention, and social interactions.
