Re: Is braincase size _really_ indicative of Intelligence?
OK- I am running a little behind responding to this post, but I thought
someone might be interested in some of these references on the topic of brain
size and intelligence. I have not read most of these, but I was collecting
the references in hopes of developing a graphing/lab activity on the subject.
That activity has not been written yet!!
Does anyone have any other sources that might be useful?
