Department of Anthropology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104 6398, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 97:4932-7. 2000..Actual direct genetic/biological associations may be quite small, and yet still may be strong enough to account for hominid brain evolution...

Department of Anthropology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
Brain Behav Evol 63:47-60. 2004..They also suggest that some measure of lean body mass is a more appropriate scaling parameter for comparing brain size across species than is overall body weight...
- Prefrontal white matter volume is disproportionately larger in humans than in other primatesP Thomas Schoenemann
Department of Anthropology, University of Pennsylvania, 3260 South St, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104 6398, USA
Nat Neurosci 8:242-52. 2005..This suggests that connectional elaboration (as gauged by white matter volume) played a key role in human brain evolution...

Department of Behavioral Sciences, University of Michigan Dearborn, Dearborn, MI 48128, USA
Am J Phys Anthropol 132:183-92. 2007..This study gives an idea of the size of possible error inherent in latex/plaster endocasts, indicating the level of confidence we can have with studies relying on comparisons between them and, e.g., hominid fossil endocasts...
