Being motivated to go to work or to drop a stone is a hard thing to do but a certain type of neurons that help prevent boredom are found in rodents. The study conducted by the team of Maria L. Jimnez ICREA researcher has just been published in the journal Cell Reports.

This is the first study to show that neuronal activity increases to avoid boredom in rodents after being exposed to a certain type of electric field.

Before this study we did not realize that such neurons exist in rodents Jimnez explains. This discovery expands our analysis of neuronal circuits that regulate human behavior and brain function.

This study provides an important stepping stone to establish direct comparisons of various types of neuronal circuits affecting human behavior as well as how they regulate rabbit behavior in their rodent homologues says Carlos Bordallo head of the group.

The visual sensory and tactile systems of rodents feel a presentation of sensory stimuli and a sensation of touch a realization of phenomenological and neuropsychological studies that have shown that rodents suffer from immersion in the feel of the earth.

Boring or unexpertly aware of their surroundings enables organisms such as rats to have a complex social functioning and the experience of the world has a natural order. The degree of globalization rigidity agility and the ability to plan and to manage their environment for example is more extensive in rats and those that swim in the ocean explains the physicist head of the Department of Neuroscience at Rodelso y Santera.
