The slideshow illustrates a mouse engaged in compulsively solving the Magic Cube, a 3-D puzzle invented by the Hungarian sculptor Ernö Rubik. Watercolor painting by the Brazilian designer and illustrator Daniel Gnattali (2015). The illustration is the artist’s interpretation of our article on the role of Agrp neurons in non-homeostatic related behaviors.
