Brain morphology and topography of cranial nerves of the armored dinosaur Bissektipelta archibaldi from the late Cretaceous of Uzbekistan are studied using an artificial endocranial cast. We reconstruct for the Bissektian ankylosaur well-developed olfaction, poor hearing and eyesight, good taste sensitivity, omnivorous diet as well as the ability to filter-feed. The brain structure of Bissektipelta archibaldi is archaic compared with other ankylosaurian species.

Brain structure and neurobiology of Bissektipelta archibaldi (Ankylosauridae), an armored dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of Uzbekistan.
Paleontological Journal 2019(3): 97-104 (Russian edition)

The brain morphology and cranial nerves topography of the armored dinosaur Bissektipelta archibaldi from the Late Cretaceous of Uzbekistan are researched on the basis of the artificial endocranial cast. We assume that the Bissektian ankylosaur had a developed olfaction and poor hearing and eyesight, a good taste sensitivity and was omnivorous as well as having an ability to filter food. The brain of B. archibaldi is shown to have an archaic structure in comparison with other ankylosaurian species.
