Abstract

Few studies have explored the relationship between creativity and intelligence/cognitive ability in non-human species and children. Testing creativity through the production of novel behaviors may be one way in which the cognitive abilities of both animals and children can be assessed. A non-verbal test of creativity was created and implemented for this study. The study measured the fluency of novel behavior in bottlenose dolphins and preschoolers after being given a hand signal or prompt.
