Kabadayi and colleagues (Royal Society Open Science, 3, 160104-7, 2016) recently showed that among birds, absolute brain size predicts performance on a motor self- control task thought to be important for cognition. However, birds performed at an equivalent level to much larger-brained primates, opening up the debate about brain size and cognition.
