Hampshire's is the nation's first undergraduate cognitive science program, and our faculty continue to pave the way in original, innovative research.
|In the Spotlight
|Sarah Partan, associate professor of animal behavior, received her Ph.D. in animal behavior from the University of California, Davis; and her B.A. in biopsychology from Wesleyan University.
Her research interests are in the areas of animal social behavior and communication. She is particularly interested in multisensory signaling: how and why animals (including humans) combine signals from multiple sensory channels during communication.
She has studied these and related questions in observational studies of wild African elephants; rhesus macaques; squirrels and lizards; and in controlled laboratory studies of birds and dolphins.
