The bit about the limitations on transfiguration - specifically human into animal transfiguraiton. I'm not sure where it comes from - there are no references or anything, and I've never seen it said anywhere in the books that turning a human into an animal also gives them the brain and mind of that animal.
And on a similar note how was Slughorn able to change back into himself from a chair

- Regarding the first item - not sure. Regarding the second, though, I rather thought that he didn't-- it was Dumbledore who changed him back. ProfessorTofty 18:03, December 3, 2011 (UTC)
- "The witch or wizard who finds him- or herself transfigured into a bat may take to the air, but, having a bat's brain, they are sure to forget where they want to go the moment they take flight."
- —Kennilworthy Whisp on the subject of magical flight.[src]
How are you able to untransfigure if your dumb as an animal? Like a hippo? And what happens when you transfigure to a dead object? Like an armchair?
