    Ayumu For President.

    and they never mention that fact that human adults treat their brains a lot worse than 5 year old chimpanzees.

    This isn't really a huge surprise. We try everything humanly possible to kill as many brain cells as we can. It is pathetic.

    Ahem... as I was going to post in the other thread before I was alerted to the fact that it was closed:

    As someone who loves animals and daily treats them as well as I do humans, I call BS on this one.

    The sample of humans was likely not as random as the sample of chimps, and there are other small issues with it as well. Firstly, University students usually have a whole lot of stuff on their plates, what with all their classes, thus raising the level of possible distractions. Second, the chimps were likely born in a lab, 'tainting' their natural intelligence with outside information. Then you can take into account the fact that younger people have better memories than older people, if you want to start considering chimps (and other animals) on the same level as humans mentally, you'll need to account for that as well.

    Isn't your brain more hardwired by the time your in college, which is why its harder for older people to learn new languages? They should have tested it against 5 year old humans and checked the results.

    This does not mean chimps are smarter than humans. Whoever wrote the article is ******ed.

    It's just memorization skills. Even dogs can do it.

    And so can dolphins.
