József Topál, DSc ethologist, the Deputy Director of Science in the HAS FS Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology, was our former colleague in the predecessor of our research group. Thus, we work in close collaboration for studying the dog’s social and cognitive abilities since 1998. In the last several years, we got help from him particularly on the field of dog-human infant comparison.

Foreign Partners

Prof. Kerstin Dautenhahn the leader of the Adaptive Systems Research Group at the University of Hertforshire and Prof. Krzysztof Tchoń the Head of the Department of Fundamental Cybernetics and Robotics at the Wroclaw University of Technology help us in the development of effective and beleivable social behaviour of companion robots.

Prof. Robert Wayne (University of California, Los Angeles) and his research group provide us access to the parts of dog and wolf genom that potentially contain locuses of still unknown polimorphisms and are not available in open databases yet.
