The Wonderful Elephant Brain

April 19th, 2016 | Brain

Enjoy this video about the highly developed elephant brain made by Alex Gendler. Elephants are much more like humans than most people realize. They can use tools, understand human body language, remember humans and other elephants for decades, and even mourn their dead.

They have roughly 300 billion neurons in their brains, which is about the same as humans. The many similarities support the theory of convergent evolution.
