Keynote Speaker
Senior Research Fellow/Royal Society University Research Fellow, University of Manchester
(Sponsored by ASAB)

The evolution of social cognition in humans and other animals
Human social cognition underpins our ultra-sociality by promoting and stabilizing cooperation, collaboration, social norms, and division of labour. In contrast, animal social cognition is often couched in Machiavellian terms involving self-regarding behaviours such as social manoeuvring or deception. This talk explores this apparent disparity and whether we have overlooked the importance of prosocial behaviours in animal social cognition, including coordination, consensus building, and efficient information use. Moreover, the strong association between primate brain size, group size and prosocial behaviours, rather than technical competence or deception, suggests that the historic interest in anti-social behaviours misses the most cognitively challenging aspects of group life.

Biography
Susanne is a Royal Society University Fellow in the Faculty of Life Sciences at the University of Manchester. She obtained an undergraduate degree in Anthropology from the University of California, Davis and a PhD in Biology from the University of Liverpool. Following her PhD, she worked for the RSPB, the University of Liverpool and the University of Oxford. Her research interests focus on the evolution of sociality and population structure in humans and other animals. Publications include:
