About this Research Topic
Not since Paul the octopus became famous during the 2010 soccer world cup have scientists realized that decision-making is not a capacity exclusive to the so-called 'higher' animals. Invertebrate animals show an amazing capacity for making decisions even if the external circumstances provide little or no information. This Research Topic celebrates the diversity of decision-making by showcasing the most well-studied cases in a range of invertebrate species.
