What has MCPH got to do with the evolution of human intelligence? It has been suggested that small, cumulative changes in MCPHassociated genes have collectively led to the increase in human brain size. There is a clear relationship between measurable intelligence and brain size within humans and between other mammals. Broadly speaking, herbivores have smaller brains than predators and scavengers. Also, nearly all conditions in which the brain is substantially reduced in size lead to… Expand
