Scientists are also interested in animal intelligence – more correctly known as animal cognition – from the point of view of comparative psychology and evolutionary psychology and with the insights it gives on the development of human intelligence. The Study of Animal Intelligence. The original method of studying animal cognition – also known as cognitive ethnology – was to perform experiments on intelligence in animals to determine the cognitive processes and patterns involved in animal behaviour. Other animals reputed to have high human-like intelligence include the ceteceans (.
We asked our resident animal lover Martha Teichner to investigate: Fenway, the Boston terrier, is trying to figure out how to get at a treat hidden inside a puzzle. What's going on in his mind? Teichner asked, "If somebody asks you, 'Is my dog smart like a human is smart?' how do you answer that question?" "It's not fair or even correct to compare dog intelligence to human intelligence," said Dr. Gregory Berns, a neuroscientist at Emory University
