Did you know, who is smarter between dog and cat???? If your answer is no, than please read this article.
This article will settle the debate between dog lovers and feline fans once and for all.
A study said that while cats have 250 million cortical neurons, but dogs have about 530 million. The human brain possesses 16 billion neurons.
These cortical neurons in their cerebral cortex are also called "little gray cells" and are associated with thinking, planning and complex behaviour -- all considered hallmarks of intelligence.
The study team analysed the brains of one or two specimens from each of eight carnivoran species: ferret, mongoose, raccoon, cat, dog, hyena, lion and brown bear to see how the numbers of neurons in their brains relate to the size of their brains.
Analysing team said that "dogs have the biological capability of doing much more complex and flexible things with their lives than cats can," Herculano-Houzel added.
The researchers also determined that the ratio of neurons to brain size in small-and medium-sized carnivores was about the same as that of herbivores, suggesting that there is just as much evolutionary pressure on the herbivores to develop the brain power to escape from predators as there is on carnivores to catch them.
