Do animals have a personality and if so why and how can we measure it?

Personality is a broad concept that refers to individual differences that occur in many species but also to individual differences that are uniquely human. This uniqueness is not only a result of our complex brains but especially of our human language.

Jana Uher is a world-leading expert in research on animal personality. She has studied more than 10 nonhuman primate species, among them gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, orangutans and various monkey species in countries all around the globe. She has also been training large-breed dogs for 16 years.

In her research, Jana has developed scientific methods to systematically compare individuals’ observable behaviours with ratings of their personality by human observers. This novel approach provided new insights into the ways in which animal individuals really differ, but also revealed erroneous attributions of all-too-human characteristics. Jana will share insights from her 15 years of research on this topic and many fascinating videos.

Jana obtained a PhD in Psychology before spending 8 years as a scientist at world-renowned universities and research institutions in various countries. Currently, Jana is a Senior Research Fellow at the London School of Economics where she explores the mental processes involved in personality judgements. Her research has received various awards and prizes for its originality and for addressing fundamental research problems.

Venue: 177 Hoxton Street

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
