Dogs Really May Be Smarter Than Cats, Study Suggests

New study finds dogs are more than twice as smart as cats Dogs Really May Be Smarter Than Cats, Study Suggests

Dogs, it turns out, have about 530 million cortical neurons. It's been accepted for publication in the journal Frontiers in Neuroanatomy.

The study was funded by the James S. McDonnell Foundation; the Schapiro Undergraduate Research Fund at Randolph-Macon College; the Vice Deanship of Research Chairs at the King Saud University; the National Research Foundation of South Africa; and Brazilian crowdfunding contributors. "At the least, we now have some biology that people can factor into their discussions about who's smarter, cats or dogs".

Your canine friend may be more smarter than felines as their brain possesses significantly more number of neurons linked to thinking, planning and complex behaviour, a study has found. Humans, by comparison, have around 16 billion. Yes, there are recognizable patterns, but there are multiple ways that nature has found of putting brains together.

Based on the number of neurons found, they speculated that dogs have roughly the same intelligence as raccoons and lions, while domestic cats have comparable intelligence to bears.

Herculano-Houzel said that studying the brains of different species is important. She said she and her colleagues have found some support that large brain size in carnivorous animals leads to better problem solving.

Herculano-Houzel argues that counting neurons is just one, albeit in her opinion the most effective to date, way to measure intelligence.

The study looks at cortical neurons, the cells associated with thinking, planning and complex behaviors that act as a measurement of intelligence, Vanderbilt's research arm wrote in a November 29 blog post. "They have a fairly small brain but they have as many neurons as you would expect to find in a primate ... and that's a lot of neurons".

Carnivorous animals were compared in the study, consisting of 280 species of mammals characterized by teeth and claws allowing them to eat animals.
