It is becoming apparent that a brain is not essential for learning and memorizing direct interactions with the dynamic natural environment.
This can now be observed in the world of Flora as well as Fauna.

Even the simplest brainless or neuronless organisms have the ability to learn and adapt to unfamiliar experiences if they prove harmless or actually communicate harmful experiences to other unrelated species .

The world of Fauna is incredibly complex and only recently has science begun to look at the microscopic interactions and communication networks that support the largest biomass on earth.

This wonderful video by 5 scientists each speaking about their specific area (with illustrations) of research is worth the time and attention.
