Angelo Bisazza

Angelo Bisazza is Professor of Psychobiology at the University of Padova and member of the Accademia Galileiana.

His early research focused on inter- and intra-specific diversity in reproductive strategies in teleost fishes with emphasis on evolution of male ornaments through female mate choice. In early nineties, he described the presence of functional brain asymmetries in fish and amphibians and later he investigated the genetic and environmental factors influencing the direction and strength of brain asymmetries in fish as well as the selective advantages and the disadvantages of cerebral lateralisation.

In recent years his research addressed the evolution of cognitive abilities in vertebrates, investigating in particular the mechanisms underlying numerical abilities in teleost fishes.
