1. Charles Lepkowsky Charles Lepkowsky United States says:

    "Brain size in our species appears to have been shrinking since the beginning of the Holocene (around 11,650 years ago)." Of course this says nothing about neural interconnectivity, which is a more meaningful correlate of intelligence than overall brain mass.
