Based on the results of a symposium on the comparative analysis of mind held by Keio University in 2002, this book is the first volume in a series of publications from the Centre for Integrated Research on the Mind(CIRM) project, one of the university’s 21st Century Center of Excellence (COE21) programs.

This research presented in this book covers work in learning and memory, categorization and conceptualization, and social cognition. The book is divided into four parts. The Introduction and Problem set out a theoretical framework of the comparative study of the mind. Part 1 discusses learning and memory, in which studies with jays, pigeons, goldfish and rats are described. Part 2 deals with categorization and concept in which studies with Java sparrows, pigeons, crows and humans are discussed. Part 3 deals with social cognition in various species, namely goldfish, corvids, chimpanzees and human infants.
