Knowledge is not just power. Even if advance information can not influence an upcoming event, people (and animals) prefer to know ahead of time what the outcome will be. According to the firing patterns of neurons in the lateral habenula, from the brain's perspective, knowledge is also water—or at least its equivalent in terms of reward.
Starting in 2022, the lab has decided to post here only the archival, open-access version of our publications. This is part of the movement to emphasize quality and content over the impact factor or prestige of the journal a paper is published in. Full citations (for referencing papers in your own work) can be found on pubmed and/or within the archival version, which will be updated once a paper is accepted for publication after peer review.
