    Contemplating Creatures: Irene Pepperberg and the Hidden World of Animal Intelligence

    Join us in a discussion to explore the animal "mind" as WBUR Radio host Robin Young interviews Alex & Me author Dr. Irene Pepperberg, who has been studying the intelligence and reasoning abilities of the African gray parrot for more than 30 years. Her star pupil, Alex, now deceased, mastered more than 100 English labels and could answer questions about the color, shape, and number of objects.
