During learning, cells in the crow brain acquire discharge patterns that associate pictures with their meaning.
It’s long been established that crows are quick to make connections; Their remarkable behavioral flexibility and adaptability allows them to navigate our cities and learn to work with traffic signals, figure out who will give them nuts – and which humans are best avoided. Researchers at the University of Tübingen have now shown how crow brains master such learning tasks. Their findings are published in the latest Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
