Brain Size Proven to be an Indication of Intelligence: Study

Researchers prove that animals with brain size proportional to their bodies were better at problem solving. It has been a long standing debate that brain size effects intelligence. The one specific detail of the argument implies that the brain size of the animal should be proportionate to their body size and structure. This is a great improvement in determining different factors of intelligence among animals and how to enhance and improve that intelligence. Contributed By Sonia Narula

Animals with larger brains may have more self-control: Study

Animals with larger brains may have more self-control than creatures with smaller noodles, a new study suggests. Self-control is important for any species on the planet. Researchers tested dozens of different species to measure how well they could regulate their behavior, and found that animals with larger brains or more complex diets had greater self-control. Humans use this ability to decide whether to save money for retirement or whether to eat a cookie while on a diet. Contributed By Anjali
