Bigger brain

A bigger brain doesn’t always account for a smarter or more intelligent person, says a new study.

The researchers acknowledge that the belief ‘bigger brain means smarter person’ is considered true in general and carries on even among many scientists, but their findings reveal increasingly common exceptions to the rule.

For instance, most biologists presume that bigger-brained rats are way smarter or more intelligent than mice, but scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) are now challenging this principle.
