Learning and exploration in action-perception loops
How this work elucidates the explorative behaviors of animals and humans, its relationship to other computational models of behavior, and its potential application to experimental design are discussed, such as in closed-loop neurophysiology studies. Expand
Exploratory Behaviours of Primitive Horses Based on Konik: A Preliminary Study
Konik horses were found to show the urge to explore, although their behavioural responses are individual and stimulus dependent. Expand

Retracing the evolutionary steps by which human brains evolved can offer insights into the underlying mechanisms of human brain function as well as the phylogenetic origin of various features ofExpand
Artificial Development by Reinforcement Learning Can Benefit From Multiple Motivations
Research on artificial development, reinforcement learning, and intrinsic motivations like curiosity may lead to more realistic artificial models for life-long learning and goal directed behavior in animals and humans. Expand
Behavioural Response to the Environmental Changes of Various Types in Lister-Hooded Male Rats
The results of this study may serve as a basis for constructing a modified theory of animal curiosity which could incorporate the concept of ecological psychology. Expand
Dairy cattle welfare as a result of human-animal relationship – a review
It was proposed paying more attention than has been paid until now, to the assessment of positive DCW in scientific research and breeding practice and the necessity of reliable information flow on the line of the breeder/milk producer - industry - consumer. Expand
Dynamics of the knowledge instinct: Effects of incoherence on the cognitive system
It is suggested that incoherence is a strong inhibitor for aesthetic chills and a positive correlation between pleasure and meaning is verified and a plausible explanation for the relation between temperature and cognition in humans is concluded. Expand
Social environment as a factor affecting exploration and learning in pre-juvenile rats
It is revealed that a distorted environment during the development process has a negative impact on the rats' emotional regulation and a subtle effect on related aspects of adaptive behaviours (i.e. exploration). Expand
