Comparing canine brains using 3D-endocast modelling

(Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Faculty of Science) Based on digital endocranial cast models the canine brain does not increase proportionally with body size. Researchers at ELTE Eötvös Loránd and Kaposvár University in Hungary reconstructed the surface morphology of 28 canine brains, including various dog breeds, wolves, coyotes, and jackals.
