Cognitive achievements with a miniature brain: The lesson of jumping spiders

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (1):94-95 (2007)
The observation that an animal's behavior is largely unaltered even after profound modifications of sizeable brain portions, suggests a large flexibility in the relationships between species-specific brain structures and species-specific behavior. In this perspective, a fascinating example is given by the comparison of jumping spiders and felids, where similar predatory behaviors are achieved with totally different brain substrates.
