Abstract

Light stimulation before hatching initiates the emergence of avian visual lateralisation. Since several studies show that birds benefit from being lateralised, we can conjecture that their clutch is being exposed to light during breeding. We tested this assumption in pigeons with a semi-natural setup where the animals were systematically recorded using a… (More)
