<div class="quote-block">WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Humpback whales have a type of brain cell seen only in humans, the great apes, and other cetaceans such as dolphins, U.S. researchers reported on Monday.<br><br><br><br>
This might mean such whales are more intelligent than they have been given credit for, and suggests the basis for complex brains either evolved more than once, or has gone unused by most species of animals, the researchers said.</div>

One more species that we can experiment on! Too bad they are so damn big, which makes laboratory experiments somewhat impractical.

Weren't we putting human brain cells in mice a few months ago anyway?*<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
*At least the article came out a few months ago, the research would have been done earlier.
