Analysis of 1,261 adult subjects, ages 25 to 80 years, showed that there is a positive relationship between the brain weight and the body dimensions. The brain weight, however, increases at a slower rate than the body dimensions. There is indication that only a small portion of the brain varies with variation in the body dimensions. Among parameters, the(More)
Fresh brain weight, gestational age, body weight, sex, and race were collected from autopsy records of 782 newborns over a 10-year period. The brain weight of the mature newborn does not differ between males and females or between white and black infants. For the premature, however, brain weight is heavier in white males than in black males and in white(More)
Draft Only (Comments welcome) Acknowledgements: We thank A. Australia for their insightful comments and suggestions on earlier drafts of this paper. Abstract This paper examines the effects of motivational and informational roles of budget participation on performance. A structural model is proposed which includes variables such as budget participation,(More)
This study compares the weight of the human brain to gestational age and body dimensions. A new formula for calculating the rate of growth is proposed. It consists of a second order polynomial function: Y = A0 + A1X + A2X2, in which Y is brain weight, body weight, height, or body surface area; X is gestational age in weeks and A0, A1, and A2 are(More)
A direct relationship exists between the weights of the infratentorial portion (ITP) of the brain and the whole brain. With aging, the weight of the ITP decreases, but the decrease begins later and is smaller than for the forebrain. With whole brain weights, there are significant differences in the weight of the ITP between sexes and between the races. The(More)
