Rats play hide and seek

All around the world children play hide and seek. But do animals do so too? In a recent study, scientists from the Bernstein Center Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Berlin and the Humboldt University Berlin show that rats can quickly learn a rat-human version of the game and can easily switch between different roles – hiding and searching. The scientists suspect that hide and seek has its origins much earlier in evolution than previously thought.
