Have you ever wondered about the intelligence of other animals, like dolphins? Dr. Melissa Shyan-Norwalt shares her expertise in animal cognition in this Oceans of Fun summer-reading-themed program! Dr. Shyan-Norwalt has conducted research on dolphins, nonhuman primates, and pet dogs and cats, with a focus on language, comparative memory, and problem-solving skills.
Dr. Shyan-Norwalt teaches Psychology at the University of Cincinnati and is a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist. In addition to her teaching and research, she maintains a part-time private practice, consulting on companion, domestic, and exotic animal behavior and animal welfare concerns for private individuals, laboratories, and zoos.
