Using Positive Reinforcement to Assist With Lemur Research: "50 Years of Lemurs at Duke" Exhibit


Were you able to check out the "50 Years of Lemurs at Duke" Exhibit In Duke University Perkins Library at Duke University? As I have mentioned here before, my lemur color vision research was featured in the "current research" exhibit as well as in an interactive video that talks about positive reinforcement. 

Communication & Behavior: Ruffed lemur color vision study

If you weren't able to check out the exhibit, don't fret. I'm posting the "positive reinforcement" video here today. It's a short segment on how lemurs are trained using positive reinforcement for lemur research. Watch for my cameo, as well as my very smart black and white ruffed lemur Halley. Enjoy!
