      Hi race364jam,

      you asked a good question! I am actually interested in all animals that can think and how clever are they. As you may know, there are individual differences (say between your parents and yourself) and and species differences (say between humans and other non-human primates). But one thing that is similar is that we are all equipped a brain to think and process information. So one way to understand how thinking process may be different at between individual and species levels is to use the same task and compare the performances 🙂 Does it make sense?
