Intuitive physics learning in a deep-learning model inspired by developmental psychology – Nature Human Behaviour

The field of artificial intelligence (AI) has made astonishing progress in recent years, mastering an increasing range of tasks that now include Atari video games1, board games such as chess and Go2, scientific problems including protein-folding3 and language modelling4. At the same time, success in these narrow domains has made it increasingly clear that something …

In vivo dissection of a clustered-CTCF domain boundary reveals developmental principles of regulatory insulation – Nature Genetics

A genetic setup to investigate boundary function in vivo We previously demonstrated that a 150-kilobase (kb) region, the EP boundary, is sufficient to segregate the regulatory activities of the Epha4 and Pax3 TADs10 (Extended Data Figs. 1 and 2). The DelB background carries a large deletion that removes this boundary region, and the Epha4 gene, …

Study Argues Developmental Dyslexia Essential to Human Adaptive Success – Neuroscience News

Summary: Researchers argue those with dyslexia are specialized to explore the unknown. This explorative bias has an evolutionary basis that plays a crucial role in human survival. Source: University of Cambridge Cambridge researchers studying cognition, behavior and the brain have concluded that people with dyslexia are specialized to explore the unknown. This is likely to …
