A recent study has shown that although they have tiny brains, bees can match symbols (like “4”) to quantities.
The researchers aren’t just interested in how smart bees are, though. According to lead scientist Adrian Dyer, this research could lead to “exciting new pathways for future communication across species” as well as “bio-inspired solutions” in computer processing.

There is some fascinating new research on how two brains interact—actually change—when collaborating with one another. In one set of work, scientists have found that when two people cooperate on a task (such…
