Brainiacs, not birdbrains: Crows possess higher intelligence long thought a primarily human attribute

Posted On Jun 23 2021 by

first_imgLeave this field empty if you’re human: Understanding the minds of nonhuman animals promises to shed light on the origins of such cognitive abilities as, in this case, knowing and analyzing the contents of one’s own brain. That’s how people solve challenges and make discoveries — what do I know? what if I look at it this way? — and it’s a pillar of higher intelligence. Knowing what you know is also a form of consciousness, and the discovery that more and more nonhumans seem to have it raises tricky questions about how we treat them.advertisement Senior Writer, Science and Discovery (1956-2021) Sharon covered science and discovery. Whether crows, ravens, and other “corvids” are making multipart tools like hooked sticks to reach grubs, solving geometry puzzles made famous by Aesop, or nudging a clueless hedgehog across a highway before it becomes roadkill, they have long impressed scientists with their intelligence and creativity.Now the birds can add one more feather to their brainiac claims: Research unveiled on Thursday in Science finds that crows know what they know and can ponder the content of their own minds, a manifestation of higher intelligence and analytical thought long believed the sole province of humans and a few other higher mammals.A second study, also in Science, looked in unprecedented detail at the neuroanatomy of pigeons and barn owls, finding hints to the basis of their intelligence that likely applies to corvids’, too.advertisement Q&A: Figuring out how songbirds sing may lead to better understanding of how humans learn Please enter a valid email address. The study shows that neurons in the most complex part of the crows’ brain, the pallium, “do have activity that represents not what was shown to them, but what they later report,” said Herculano-Houzel. Neurons “represent what the animals next report to have seen — whether or not that is what they were shown,” she said. The neurons figure this out, so to speak, during the time lapse between when Nieder tells the birds the rule and when they peck the target to indicate their answer.“That’s exactly what one would expect from neurons that participated in building the thoughts that we later report,” she said, suggesting that corvids “are as cognitively capable as monkeys and even great apes.”A second study looked in unprecedented detail at the neuroanatomy of pigeons and barn owls, finding hints to the basis of their intelligence that likely applies to corvids’, too. Scientists have long known that crows and ravens have unusually large forebrains, but unlike mammals’ forebrains — the neocortex — corvids’ do not have the six connected layers thought to produce higher intelligence. But theirs do have “connectivity patterns … reminiscent of the neocortex,” scientists led by Martin Stacho of Ruhr-University in Germany reported.Specifically, the pigeons’ and owls’ neurons meet at right angles, forming computational circuits organized in columns. “The avian version of this connectivity blueprint could conceivably generate computational properties reminiscent of the [mammalian] neocortex,” they write. “[S]imilar microcircuits … achieve largely identical cognitive outcomes from seemingly vastly different forebrains.” That is, evolution invented connected, circuit-laden brain structure at least twice.“In theory, any brain that has a large number of neurons connected into associative circuitry … could be expected to add flexibility and complexity to behavior,” said Herculano-Houzel. “That is my favorite operational definition of intelligence: behavioral flexibility.”That enables pigeons to home, count, and be as trainable as monkeys. But for sheer smarts we’re still in the corvid camp. A 2014 study showed that New Caledonian crows, rooks, and European jays can solve an Aesop’s Fable challenge, dropping stones into a water-filled tube to bring a floating bit of food within reach, something kids generally can’t do until age 7. These birds were the first nonhuman animals to solve the task. “Together, the two papers show that intelligence/consciousness are grounded in connectivity and activity patterns of neurons” in the most neuron-dense part of the bird brain, called the pallium, neurobiologist Suzana Herculano-Houzel of Vanderbilt University, who wrote an analysis of the studies for Science, told STAT. “Brains can appear diverse, and at the same time share profound similarities. The extent to which similar properties present themselves might be simply a matter of scale: how many neurons are available to work.” Sharon Begley By Sharon Begley Sept. 24, 2020 Reprints In the LabBrainiacs, not birdbrains: Crows possess higher intelligence long thought a primarily human attribute Related: Marko Drobnjakovic/AP “It has been a good week for bird brains!” said crow expert John Marzluff of the University of Washington, who was not involved in the new studies. In particular, the discovery that crows know what they know will not surprise avian scientists, “who have increasingly demonstrated the cognitive abilities of birds, … but they will be relieved! This research is groundbreaking.”To test whether crows know and can analyze the contents of their brains, neurobiologist Andreas Nieder of the University of Tübingen in Germany trained two birds to peck a red or a blue target on a panel, depending whether they saw a faint light. Nieder kept varying the “rule,” with the birds told which color meant what — red = saw it, or blue = saw it — only after the flash. That required the crows, Glenn and Ozzy, to keep monitoring their brains; they had a second or two to figure out what they had seen and tell Nieder by choosing the corresponding target.While the crows were solving these tasks, the researchers were tracking the activity of hundreds of their neurons. (Crows’ brains have 1.5 billion neurons, as many as some monkey species.)When the crows reported having seen a faint light, sensory neurons were active between the flash and the birds pecking the color that meant, yes, I saw that. If the crows did not perceive the very same faint stimulus, the nerve cells remained silent, and the bird pecked, no, I didn’t see anything. Ozzy and Glenn’s brain activity systematically changed depending on whether or not they had perceived the dim flash.During the delay, many neurons responded according to the crows’ impending report, rather than to the brightness of the light. “A population of neurons contained information about the crows’ subjective experience throughout the trial,” the scientists wrote.The birds were aware of what they subjectively perceived, flash or no flash, correctly reporting what their sensory neurons recorded, Nieder told STAT. “I think it demonstrates convincingly that crows and probably other advanced birds have sensory awareness, in the sense that they have specific subjective experiences that they can communicate,” he said. “Besides crows, this kind of neurobiological evidence for sensory consciousness only exists in humans and macaque monkeys.” Privacy Policy Newsletters Sign up for Daily Recap A roundup of STAT’s top stories of the day.

Italy network plan tipped to hit EU headwinds

Posted On Jun 4 2021 by

first_img European Commission (EC) regulators were rumoured to be against a plan to create a single fibre network in Italy majority owned by Telecom Italia, Bloomberg reported, the latest hurdle against an initiative besieged by disagreements since inception.The news website’s sources said EC competition officials were concerned the move would create a monopoly controlled by one of the country’s major communications companies.Although the EC is monitoring the situation, the proposal is yet to be formally submitted to the authority because details are still being finalised at a national level.The creation of a single fibre provider in the country supplying services on a wholesale basis is a long-term project seen by Italy’s authorities as a way of improving broadband infrastructure. It is set to comprise assets from Telecom Italia and smaller rival Open Fiber.However, the project faced opposition and disagreements from a number of parties. Up to last month detractors included Telecom Italia which clashed with the country on its shareholding and ultimate control of the newly-formed company.Earlier this month Telecom Italia announced a preliminary agreement on the government’s plan, with it holding more than 50 per cent of the equity in the venture. The announcement came alongside confirmation of details of the operator’s plan to spin-off fixed assets into FiberCop.

News / UAE bans Moldovan cargo operators from its airports, citing safety fears

Posted On May 25 2021 by

first_img By Alex Lennane 27/01/2020 An Aerotrans Cargo 747F The UAE has banned cargo operators from Moldova from its airports over safety concerns.The ruling will affect Aerotrans Cargo, Air Stork and Global Air Transport.The UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority wrote to Moldova’s equivalent authority, the MCAA, on 19 January, noting “in the interest of aviation safety and in accordance with Article 4 of the Air Service Agreement … the UAE GCAA has decided to ban all operations of cargo aircraft from the republic of Moldova to/from UAE airports, until further notice”.The ban comes into effect on 1 February.The UAE said it had seen “no significant improvement of safety standards of the cargo operators, or in adoption of long-term measures by MCAA, since the first safety consultation meeting in 2013”.It said that since July, several safety issues had been logged, including the ban of Air Stork in September for safety violations, and three instances  where the pilot was “identified as the instigator”, including a taxiway incursion and deviation from ATC clearance. None of these instances was reported by the operator, as required.The UAE added that at least two non-scheduled cargo operators had broken the aviation agreement between the countries by basing an aircraft in the UAE and exercising the seventh freedom with no continuation of service to or from Moldova.According to one source, the ban will affect the operations of Global Air Transport and Bismillah Airlines, which use Aerotrans Cargo’s AOC to fly from Sharjah to Delhi, Dhaka and Ostend.Aerotrans Cargo, which operates four 747 freighters, has its headquarters in Moldova – but its operational base is in Sharjah. The Aviation Herald has reported three safety issues with its aircraft since February 2018, all in Europe.One Moldovan carrier, Fly Pro, was launched in 2016, with one 747 freighter used for chartered cargo services on various routes in the Middle East and Asia, but its AOC was revoked by the Moldovan CAA on 1 April 2019. That freighter continues to operate however; although it is not clear who the operator is.last_img read more
