In this talk, you’ll learn more about the socio-sexual behavior of belugas (or white whales) and the recent research that examined whether beluga socio-sexual behavior is lateralized. We will also discuss how the lateralization of this behavior changes across development.
Malin Lilley is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Texas A&M University-San Antonio. Her research focuses on the development of social and socio-sexual behavior in cetaceans. Learn more about Dr. Lilley’s work here.
You can find other DCP webinars on our YouTube Channel or right here, on our website (look under the Knowledge Hub!). Specifically, this December 2021 webinar discusses how sexual play behaviors develop in young belugas.
