Information Flow in Animal-Robot Interactions
The nonverbal transmission of information between social animals is a primary driving force behind their actions and, therefore, an important quantity to measure in animal behavior studies. DespiteExpand

The Dance of Male Anopheles gambiae in Wild Mating Swarms
ABSTRACT An important element of mating in the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae Giles in nature is the crepuscular mating aggregation (swarm) composed almost entirely of males, where most couplingExpand

Live predators, robots, and computer-animated images elicit differential avoidance responses in zebrafish.
Emotional disturbances constitute a major health issue affecting a considerable portion of the population in western countries. In this context, animal models offer a relevant tool to address theExpand

Sociality modulates the effects of ethanol in zebra fish.
BACKGROUND The complex social behavior exhibited by zebra fish is often leveraged in preclinical studies to investigate whether and how psychoactive compounds modulate inter individual interactions.Expand

Model-free information-theoretic approach to infer leadership in pairs of zebrafish.
Collective behavior affords several advantages to fish in avoiding predators, foraging, mating, and swimming. Although fish schools have been traditionally considered egalitarian superorganisms, aExpand

Reconstructing the flight kinematics of swarming and mating in wild mosquitoes
We describe a novel tracking system for reconstructing three-dimensional tracks of individual mosquitoes in wild swarms and present the results of validating the system by filming swarms and matingExpand

Temperature influences sociality and activity of freshwater fish
Temperature is a critical environmental factor in the ecology of fish, significantly influencing their physiology and behavior. Previous studies on the effect of temperature have focused on theExpand

The effects of flow on schooling Devario aequipinnatus: school structure, startle response and information transmission.
To assess how flow affects school structure and threat detection, startle response rates of solitary and small groups of giant danio Devario aequipinnatus to visual looming stimuli were compared inExpand

Drawing power of virtual crowds
In 1969, social psychologist Milgram and his colleagues conducted an experiment on a busy city street where passers-by witnessed a set of actors spontaneously looking up towards a building. TheExpand
