A new meta-analysis by the University of Vienna, University of Goettingen, and Tilburg University has confirmed a small association between brain size and IQ, independent of age and sex. The study concluded that brain structure and integrity are more important factors.
- In 1836 German physiologist Friedrich Tiedemann linked brain size to intellectual power.
- The sperm whale has the largest central nervous system by mass.
-- Controlling for body weight, the shrew has the largest.
- Men have larger brains than women, but there is no IQ difference between the sexes. (Debatable. Rushton thought there was.)
- Megalencephalic individuals (who have larger brains) have lower IQs than average.
