Hello world, 

Since the elephant is a huge animal I wonder if it's brain size/number
of neurons is higher than a human brain. The human cortex has around 30
billion neurons.  Do you have any data for elephants ?. *If* they have
a larger number of neurons can somebody explain me why they are not
able to reason as much as people do ?.
