What experiments have been carried out where animals perform better
than us at particular cognitive tasks?

I remember reading / seeing an experiment performed with chimps that seemed to show that they could hold a higher number of objects in their mind at any one time than humans can.
I remember seeing them tapping on numbered buttons when objects were flashed in front of them. Humans perfomed less well on the same task at higher speeds and numbers.
Know this experiment?
How about ANY OTHER similar resulting experiments?
Thanks a lot
