Really none. Humans have the same brain structures as other animals.  The only basic difference in structure between animal and human  brains is that: 1. The brain size/body weight of the human brain is greater than  any in the animal kingdom. 2. The surface of the human brain is more convoluted (ridges and  grooves) than animal brain (much smoother). By the way, due  to deterioration of the surface of the human brain, Alzheimer’s  Disease patients also have “smooth” looking brains. B. Humans in contrast to animals have 1.
