## Minds In the Wild

#### Penn Today, Sep 2019

“I’m interested in the foundations of our mathematical mind: how babies come into the world with a sense of quantity, what kind they have, and how that then gets morphed into a more elaborate representation when children learn to count and use number words,” explains Brannon.

## Nature’s Numbers

#### Disovery, BBC, Jan 2016

Lemurs and parrots accompany maths writer Alex Bellos as he explores the foundations of our ability to understand numbers.

## Have you heard the buzz? Honeybees can count.

“The main hallmark of numerical discrimination in animals,” Professor Brannon says, has to do with ratios. “When animals are comparing two numerical values, they’re much better if they differ by a large ratio than if they differ by a very small ratio.”
