ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A scientific end to the debate over pet intelligence.

Researchers at Vanderbilt University are ending the argument. They say a dog’s cerebral cortex has twice as many neurons as a cat’s brain. Neurons are the cells linked to thinking, planning, and complex behaviors, all things related to intelligence. The study’s author says this proves that dogs have the biological capability of doing much more complex and flexible things with their lives than cats, think military, police canine units, and service dogs.
