Comparing Brain Sizes


When it comes to brains, is bigger always better? In this episode, we discuss the differences between brains across the animal kingdom. In general, bigger brains mean smarter animals. However, we talk about new research that shows that densely packed brains can also lend smarts to animals with small brains, like certain birds. We also interview Chelsea Bennice about the unique brain of the octopus!
