Abstract

Nieder, Wagener, & Rinnert ( Science, 369 (6511), 1626–1629, 2020 ) demonstrated that some neurons in a prefrontal-like brain area of carrion crows signal neither the physical stimulus nor the intended action but the upcoming choice. This pattern of results implies that neural computations for consciousness can be generated by nonmammalian brains in similar ways as in primates.
