They had two groups of mink, one housed in typically bland cages, with little to no opportunity to engage in any purposeful behaviours, and another group housed in cages with ample opportunity for action. The clever trick in this study came next. By exposing the two groups to pleasurable stimuli (a toothbrush, which is apparently to a mink what a laser pointer is to a cat), aversive stimuli (the smell of a predator’s urine) or neutral objects (a water bottle) they could differentiate the animal’s state. … [Read more...] about Why Does Boredom Exist?
