Need these two questions answered for a take home essay, preferably someone who has done some research in the field of ethology, or is somewhat with ethology or. First question needs at least 5 sources, and the second needs at least 3 (all sources need to be peer reviewed). Information needs to be concise and to the point since there is not a lot of wiggle room in either question, i.e. no superflous cramming of information or words wasted on defining concepts. Mainly needs to have synthesis of information and critical analysis. 1) Compare and contrast the external factors (environmental, physical, atmospheric, etc.) that contribute to the similarities and differences in acoustic (auditory) and olfactory stimuli and information processing in natural settings in animals. In other words, how are these sensory modalities similar and how are they different? Make sure to define the technical terms you use. You are allowed to use footnotes. Things to consider: Wind, temperature, humidity, obstacles, substrate 1250 to 1500 words 2) Neuroethologists and ethologists often discuss the concept of “motor syntax” or “motor grammar”. It was presented in this class as an extension of theories using rule-based systems (common in biology, neuroscience, and the cognitive sciences). Sources for this include Richard Dawkins, Kent Berridge, John Fentress, etc., and from the social-level concept of “social grammar”, Frans de Waal. Describe the construct of motor syntax/grammar and how it is tied to the concept of innate behaviours and/or predictability of behaviours (e.g., the issue of degrees of freedom). Avoid the “rabbit hole” of taking the term or concepts too literally. The sources do not have to address language or the motor aspect of language to be appropriate. In fact, keep the essay in the realm of animal behaviour, and behaviour patterns. You have relatively few degrees of freedom on this question, so take in consideration the two points below.: – You are allowed to discuss the early theories of behaviour patterns: Lorenz, Tinbergen, Schleidt, Barlow, etc. – The neuroscience of this construct is equally fair game: From the basal ganglia to associated structures.
