Psychologists' Research with African Grey Parrots Featured on UGA Homepage
April, 2011

Research by UGA psychologists Erin Colbert-White and Dr. Dorothy Fragaszy recently graced the headline banners of the UGA homepage. Their work has shown, for the first time, that an African Grey parrot can develop a deeper understanding of the sounds—which we hear as words—than researchers previously thought. The article was recently published in the Journal of Comparative Psychology. We're proud of the hard work by this team of scientists and are honored to see our Department's efforts receiving such high acclaim by the University.
