What You’re Opinion About? To answer this answer must be an objective person event you are one of the dog’s lovers. Nowadays, both pets cats and dogs are the most popular pets around the world.
Both animals have quite a lot of breed, these cute animals also have high intelligence compared to other carnivorous. Do you know, from the two animals which are the smartest?
A study published by the Frontiers journal in Neuroanatomy explains the fact that dogs have more intelligence than cats.
The researchers from Vanderbilt University also discovered the fact that the dog has about 530 million cortical neurons. While cats have only less than half, which is 250 million (humans have about 16 billion).
Suzana Herculano-Houzel a professor of psychology and biological sciences at Vanderbilt explains, if the absolute number of neurons belonging to animals, especially in the cerebral cortex, determines their internal mental state and their ability to predict what will happen in their environment based on their past experiences.
The researchers have also explained that the brain’s physical size is not related to overall intelligence.
For example, the bear’s brown brain is 10 times bigger than the cat, but it has almost the same number of neurons. The Rakun also equals cat intelligence.
Despite the discovery, Herculano-Houzel admitted that there was little bias.
“Our findings suggest that dogs have the biological ability to do much more complex and flexible things with their lives than cats,” says Herculano-Houzel as reported from the Health.com page.
