Study Says Pigeons Peck With Purpose

Reuters (May 31, 2013) — Pigeons are more intelligent than previously thought, according to researchers in the United States. Using touch screens to test the birds' problem-solving skills, University of Iowa scientists have demonstrated that pigeons can make considered choices while negotiating complex challenges presented by the widely-used "string task" intelligence test.

Food for Thought: Fish Brain Activity Recorded for First Time

Reuters (Feb. 1, 2013) — For the first time, researchers have recorded the progress of a thought as it travels through the brain of a living fish. Using a two-step approach, Akira Muto and his team in Japan say it is now possible to identify the brain circuits involved in complex behaviors, a development that could one day be used in psychiatric drug research.
