  Description of Seminar/Conference

Join researcher and PhD student, Nathaniel Hall, M.S., Live and online in a 60 minutes webinar when he will present his ongoing research on the canine sense of smell. Nathan will describe the procedures he has developed to quickly train odor-discrimination in dogs, and how this procedure can be used to evaluate the effects of procedural manipulations on odor-detection in dogs. He will present data evaluating the effect of familiarity of a target odor on the acquisition of odor discrimination. More familiar odors appear to be more readily learned; however, how the odors are familiarized™ is important.

Throughout the talk, Nathan will review basic concepts of olfaction, Pavlovian conditioning, and how Pavlovian conditioning and operant conditioning interact. He will conclude by indicating how the present research might be useful for the training of working odor-detecting dogs.

Discussion will follow, moderated by Dr. Monique Udell.
