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
