Cephalopod intelligence is a measure of the cognitive ability of the cephalopod class of molluscs.. Intelligence is generally defined as the process of acquiring, storing, retrieving, combining, comparing, and recontextualizing information and conceptual skills. Though these criteria are difficult to measure in nonhuman animals, cephalopods seem to be exceptionally .

Cephalopods - cuttlefish, octopuses and squid - are successful predators living throughout the world's seas. Their success is due largely to their advanced senses, large brains and complex behavior. This is the first book to summarize what is known of their behavior in the sea as well as the laboratory/5.

Introduction. The Cephalopoda is an ancient and very successful group of the Mollusca. Cephalopods have been among the dominant large predators in the ocean at various times in geological history. Two groups of cephalopods exist today: The Nautiloidea with a few species of the pearly nautilus, and the Coleoidea, containing the squids, cuttlefishes, octopods and .Cephalopoda is the most morphologically and behaviorally complex class in phylum Mollusca.

Cephalopoda means "head foot" and this group has the most complex brain of any invertebrate. Cephalopods are characterized by a completely merged head and foot, with a ring of arms and/or tentacles surrounding the head.Cambridge Core - Animal Behaviour - Cephalopod Cognition - edited by Anne-Sophie Darmaillacq.
