*All mammals have the same basic brain structures. Therefore, the only thing that would differ between the brains of humans, pigs, dogs, mice, etc. is size and proportion of the different structures of the brain. The largest part in humans is the cerebrum, which is responsible for thought, behavior, sensation, processing the impulses received by the senses, and things like memory and emotion.

Reptiles have a very small cerebrum and rely mostly on their brain stem, the basic structure of the brain that regulates heartbeat, breathing, etc.
