Birds are capable of high level cognition even though their telencephalon is organized into nuclear groups rather than a six-layered cortex as in the mammalian brain. New data show that, despite their different macroscale organization, the circuitries of avian and mammalian telencephalon are fundamentally similar and may therefore carry out equivalent computations.
