Primate brain size does not predict their intelligence https://t.co/FIShA2p9Yz

Recruiting science dogs and their owners for a community science project🐾We require videos of your pooch's face so we can explore how dogs express emotions. Please fill out the form and spread the word! 🐶 https://t.co/rWO3S9QJKc https://t.co/ZzpUSCcyiC

This should be read as "newfound results about how the avian brain is structured", and not as "we've discovered a new part of the brain"...

A more generally-accessible summary of the two new papers in Science today. https://t.co/HgUdBuaedM

Amazing work from Andreas Nieder's lab. A neural correlate of sensory consciousness in a corvid bird https://t.co/odI854CO7h

Here is one of the main papers leading to the opinion piece: A cortex-like canonical circuit in the avian forebrain https://t.co/gFIrucyaQV

Very nice summary and argument by one of our most influential comparative neuroanatomists, summarizing the similarities between avian and mammalian brains. Birds do have a brain cortex—and think https://t.co/Rcn0JYo13R

Vacancy for a part-time animal (welfare) scientist to do research on inter alia the welfare of pigs and poultry in low-input systems (<Oct 4 @ Frank Tuyttens @ ILVO, Flanders, Belgium). https://t.co/NM3fwHyS3B

New research shows the welfare benefits of picking up mice via a tunnel instead of by the tail persist even after repeated restraint, intraperitoneal injection and short-duration anaesthesia, adding to the substantial evidence for non-aversive handling: https://t.co/KCFPlJbcGJ https://t.co/hLUubQVFZj
