Allosaurus brain

In case anybody missed this, check out the article about Jim Madsen and
Scott Rodgers' description of a well-preserved Allosaurus braincase at
http://members.xoom.com/prehistorics/News291.html. Among other details,
they find evidence that Allosaurus snapped at its food the way crocodiles
do.
There is also a reference to an article by Scott Rodgers in the October 1998 
issue
of the journal Neuron "Exploring Dinosaur Neuropaleobiology." Haven't
seen it yet, but will check this weekend.
