Research by Kyriacos Kareklas and Colleagues
The purpose of this website is to present the research and findings of the author and his colleagues and to provide access to our evidence-based discussions to both other researchers and the broader public.
Currently located in the Medical Biology Center at Queen's University Belfast (QUB), the Cognition and Animal Navigation (CAN) laboratory has been focused on converging work on four broad topics: navigation, spatial cognition, sensory mechanisms, individual and social behaviour. The work has been mainly carried out in model-species of teleost fish, such as the electrosensing Peters' elephantonose fish, the shoaling zebrafish, the fast aging killifish, the social guppies and the competitive male Siamese fighting fish. The research is in collaboration with the Animal Communication and Behaviour group, the Ecosystem Biology & Sustainability cluster at the School of Biological Sciences and the Institute of Global Food Security at QUB.
Dr. Kyriacos Kareklas
Behaviour and cognition
My work is based on integrative and interdisciplinary research, with an interest in the interaction of animals with their environment and others, focusing on mechanisms and functions of cognition and behaviour, phenotypic plasticity and adaptation. I have worked within and between the fields of ecology, behaviour, cognition, neuroscience and evolutionary biology. I am fascinated by many taxons with past research involving corals, annelids, fish, birds and humans.
