Dissecting a Dinosaur Brain (sort of)

Season 3 Episode 30 | 5m 27s

How can we figure out the intelligence of something that's been extinct for millions of years? Well, one way is by looking at the structure of its brain. I chat about what we know about dinosaur brains with my friend Dustin Growick, dinosaur whisperer. I also dissect a T. rex brain, which really means I cut up a clay model with a knife. It was fun.
