Extended spider cognition

Hilton F. Japyassú, Kevin N. Laland
2017 Animal Cognition  
The extension of cognition to the web helps to explain some puzzling features of spider behaviour and seems to promote evolvability within the group, enhancing innovation through cognitive connectivity  ...  Graded changes in relative brain size could also be explained by outsourcing information processing to environmental features.  ...  Research supported in part by a Grant from the John Templeton Foundation to KNL. William Eberhard, Kenneth Mavor and Stefan Pulver helped to improve the original manuscript with ideas and criticisms.  ...

eManaging Ambient Organizations in 3D

Viktoria Skarler
2009 Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research  
As we work in different constellations, levels, networks, and sub networks etc., we need to see networking in multiple dimensions, i.e. as ambient organizations.  ...  The support of this multi-dimensionality from information and communication technologies (ICT) moves us towards using the dynamics of social technologies as Web 2.0 (ff Web 3.0) and an intelligent semantic  ...  Similar like those of spiders, webs of cultural meaning are sticky.  ...

Epidemiology and the web of causation: Has anyone seen the spider?

Nancy Krieger
1994 Social Science and Medicine  
Multiple causation' is the canon of contemporary epidemiology, and its metaphor and model is the 'web of causation.'  ...  s 'web,' 'treatment in clinics' and the 'economy' occupy the same level, and rate the same kind of 'box' as 'injection of foreign serum' and 'epidemic hepatitis in community' (Fig. 1) .  ...  Expressly challenging the still-pervasive tendency of epidemiologists to think in terms of single 'agents' causing discrete diseases, the provocative metaphor and model of the 'web' invited epidemiologists  ...

Wolves, Crows, and Spiders: An eclectic Literature Review inspires a Model explaining Humans' similar Reactions to ecologically different Wildlife

Uta Maria Jürgens, Paul M. W. Hackett
2021 Frontiers in Environmental Science  
In this paper we provide the findings from an eclectic review of purposefully sampled literature on human relations to wolves, corvids and spiders.  ...  Despite ecological specificities, various cases of human-wildlife conflicts may evoke similar mental processes and, accordingly, the same reactions in people.  ...  Still, most people know little about spiders. The most commonly known facts are the most alienating ones, for example many species' use of webs and all spiders' external digestion in foraging.  ...
