‘To Be Imprinted or Not To Be?’ Long-term Behavioral Effect of Exposure to Imprinting Stimuli in Chicks

Hi! Welcome to the website of my Master’s project.

My name is Irem and I am from Turkey who came to study MSc Applied Ethology and Animal Biology in Linköping Univeristy. Since behavior itself and animals have always been in my area of interest, this program was a perfect opportunity for me to experience the field from a different perspective.

For my Master’s project, I participated in a study that focuses on imprinting behavior in chicks (Gallus gallus domesticus) and long-term behavioral effects in the presence of imprinting stimuli.
