The researchers measured the number of neurons in the cat and dog brain responsible for problem solving and information processing. The cat has an amazing 300 million, while the dog has only 160 million.
This means that cats will react faster than dogs in certain things. Is that better than ours?
The human part of the processing power comes from the folds on the surface of our brain, where the more wrinkles there are, the larger the surface area, the stronger the brain’s processing power.
The cat’s brain is as wrinkled as ours, with nearly 90% similarity. They also have large and complex brain structures that dominate decision making, memory, advance planning and reasoning skills.
In this way, it is actually quite smart, but occasionally it will be crazy to sell.
