  Or inversely. Consider: in humans, women's brains are on average larger
relative to body size than men's brains, but in comparison, men's brains are
more densely packed with neurons. Now, if we are considering the convolutions,
relative to cortex folding, then this is really nearly impossible to tell in
most fossil animals.
