While dolphins have advanced communication skills and cognitive abilities, they do not have the same level of intelligence as humans. Like dogs, dolphins use gestures and human gestures to detect distant objects. As humans, dolphins can use their environment to their advantage. For example, a group of dolphins in Australia carried sponges in their shops to protect their blindfolds from coral reefs.

Although dolphins and whales are extremely intelligent, they do not have the skills and intelligence of humans. Dolphins, on the other hand, have developed their cognitive abilities in a world untouched by humans. Although they may be able to use simple tools and have different abilities from complex animals, they do not yet have the same level of use of tools, problem solving, and common sense as humans.

Compared with humans, dolphins have smaller frontal lobes - parts of the brain that control memory, problem-solving and communication - parts. Instead, they have a much more complex neocortex, a part of the brain responsible for problem solving, self-esteem, and many other aspects of human intelligence. Dolphins are very much non-human deer, so we should consider them very intelligent.

Both humans and dolphins are considered to be the most intelligent animals on earth. They are considered to be the most intelligent animals in the world, apart from other monkeys. Bottlenose dolphins have a larger brain than humans (1600 grams compared to 1300 grams) and their body size is larger than that of monkeys, but lower than humans.

CITIES, with their ingenuity, communication skills, playfulness and ability to comprehend complex commands from trainers, are often regarded as the second most intelligent animals after humans. But while the limits of human intelligence apply to other species, dolphins are closer to the functioning of the human brain, according to a new study. Studies suggest that dolphins are smarter than apes and are superior to humans, according to Thomas White, a professor of ethics at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and other dolphin lawyers, including Lori Marino of Emory University in Atlanta.

In fact, the ratio of brain size and body size to dolphins is second only to humans. While some humans have an EQ of 7.5, dolphins are the highest of 5.3, meaning that their brains are more than five times the size expected. The long joke under Kelly is that dolphins are trained by their trainers to perform intelligence tests that show they have not yet surpassed human comprehension.

Marino began to study dolphins and discovered that the proportions of dolphins were only about the size of humans. Measured in size, the bottlenose dolphin weighs between 1,500 and 1,700 grams and is four times the size of a human. Dolphins have a brain and body size of the dolphin brain that surpasses those of other intelligent members of the primate family.

A second behavioral study conducted by Lori Marino, Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Behavior Biology at Emory University and one of the world's leading dolphin experts, along with other experts, has shown that dolphins demonstrate human potential. Dolphins are widely believed to be the second most intelligent animals on earth, after humans. When we talk about "being human" and reacting to the world we can compare the intelligence of animals because dolphins are not at the same level as chimpanzees.

Scientists believe that this advanced paradigm shift enables them to process emotions and play a role in complex social relationships in dolphin societies that are more developed than humans. Several researchers have observed that animals with the ability to learn the masses often bring "dolphin intelligence to the level of elephants." LSD research and wild studies have shown that dolphins have the same shortcomings as humans.

While the brains of elephants have the same weight as dolphins, the whale's brain is 20% larger than humans. Although brain size is not a sign of ingenuity, Hans Thewissen, professor of North East Ohio Medical University's study of the evolution of whales, believes that part of the escape from early dolphins to modern whales, porpoise, belugas, and other mammals occurs when they practice hunting. their by echolocation. This advanced ability is often associated with what is considered extremely intelligent (coughing, human coughing), but the fact that the wires separated from the whales and dolphins' brain shows that whales think more than they normally think.

John Lilly, a scientist who specializes in the design of bottled dolphins, did some of the first work that laid the foundation for studying the ingenuity of dolphins' brains. While humans have long admired the ingenuity of dolphins, some have sought to exploit it in the form of dolphin exhibits, popular water shows, television shows, and war plans. Learning about dolphins - and leaving them to humans to build and test the lab - is not an indication that the dolphin's ability to recreate everything throws by nature.

They compared the quotient of encephalic dolphins with those of other intelligent creatures such as chimpanzees, humans, gorillas and orangutans. The sounds of humans in the water are different from the sounds of dolphins in the water, and the bottle-nosed dolphin named Tanner was able to change the style of swimming without being noticed. Evidence that animals are more like us than we would like to believe is so compelling that Marino, one of the dolphin research leaders, has promised to study dolphins in nature and not in a telephone interview.
