Despite enormous efforts, any correlation between -intelligence-and cognitive or physiological/anatomical properties of animal brains is still poorly understood because intelligence depends on multiple factors in parallel and not a single determinant. The study by Wang et al. is both novel and intriguing, but we believe that the experimental results presented do not directly support their conclusion. Unfortunately, a mechanistic explanation of the correlation between intelligence and the spectral properties of biophotonic emission is not given in ref. 2, raising concerns that the observed correlation does not reflect a causal relationship but rather an accidental coincidence
