More brain than trait: Decoding the neural pathways of curiosity

The fascination for the unknown drives progress. Thanks to it, organisms are able to survive in a constantly changing environment. Curiosity therefore essentially shapes human development. But what is behind it? Researchers hypothesize that curiosity is not so much a fixed character attribute, but rather a complex interplay between different regions of the brain. Dr. Petra Mocellin and the research team led by Prof. Dr. Stefan Remy at the Leibniz Institute of Neurobiology (LIN) have decoded a neuronal circuit in the brain that regulates curiosity for the first time. The results were recently published in the renowned scientific journal Neuron.

AI as a physicist

The development of a new theory is typically associated with the greats of physics. You might think of Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein, for example. Many Nobel Prizes have already been awarded for new theories. Researchers at Forschungszentrum Jülich have now programmed an artificial intelligence that has also mastered this feat. Their AI is able to recognize patterns in complex data sets and to formulate them in a physical theory.

Forschungsrealität verzerrt dargestellt

This article is available in German only.

Die Initiative Tierversuche verstehen hat die jüngste Sendung „45 Minuten – Das Schicksal der Laborhunde“ vom 20. November einem Faktencheck unterzogen und ist auf eine voreingenommene Darstellung mit einer Vielzahl von falschen Behauptungen und Unterstellungen gestoßen. So wird ein künstlich hergestelltes Foto als „nachgestellt“ deklariert, angebliche Verhaltensauffälligkeiten der Tiere verzerrt dargestellt und Informationen für eine ausgewogene Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema ignoriert. Im Beitrag „Illegale Tierversuche – Massive Verstöße in deutschen Versuchslaboren“ auf werden die Inhalte wiederholt. Mehrere Forschende und Tierpfleger:innen kündigten gegen den TV-Beitrag Programmbeschwerden an.
