I-5YQ: "Try to envision your arms and legs having minds of their own, as the saying goes."
Den Dhur: "It makes no sense. Actually, it's even worse than that. It makes anti-sense."
I-5YQ and Den Dhur on ganglionic intelligence[src]

Ganglionic Intelligence was an extremely rare type of intelligence among species in the galaxy. Most beings believed that this referred to a hive mind, but it was actually very different. It had what was called compartmentalized consciousness. This meant that there was one central intelligence, connected to which were many sub-intelligences, all collecting information separately from the central intelligence.

One species known to have ganglionic intelligence was the Cephalon.
