Recently Awarded Small Grant from UCLA Animal Law Program

The lab was recently awarded a small grant from the UCLA Animal Law program, for the project “The Paradox of Animal Empathy: A Motivational Approach to Fostering Empathy for Animal Suffering”. This project examines the role of effort and financial costs in shaping empathic choices in response to humans vs. animals. The grant is in collaboration with Janet Swim (Psychology) and Robert Chiles (Agricultural Economics, Sociology, and Education; Rock Ethics Institute).
