Rats (as you can see) are said to be very intelligent, actually. According to studies, rat brains are similar in function and structure to the human brain.

For years, some folks assumed rats were blind. Though, Harvard researchers have proven that their processing and vision and abilities are sophisticated enough for them to recognize 3-D objects despite alterations in orientation or size. They can even tell when a motion picture (e.g. movie) features rats.

Scientists have too exploited rats in psychology experiments for more than 100 years, due in part to the analogous structure of their brains to the human brain and their decision-making skills. Accordant to researchers, rats are able to locate a good pattern and stick to it, and they’re less inclined to second-guess themselves than humans.
