I hope none of us!!! Sometimes having a big brain means something is wrong. For example if you hold too much water in your brain it is bad for it and can give you brain damage. Also if you hit your head very badly (eg. in a car crash) your brain can swell and because there is nowhere for your brain to go as your skull is a rigid box it gets damaged. This swelling can also happen to an extent after stroke, therefore some of my research is looking at this in relation to inflammation and the immune system.
Exactly, Emily! I hope my brain is sized just right :).
If you’re asking who is the smartest among us, I’m guessing we’re all tied. We all have our specialties but from interacting with these folks and reading their answers to your questions, I would say that the students and scientists in this program are all quite smart!
I agree we are most likely all tied. One person who had a bit of an edge is Einstien- the part of the brain that deals with mathematical thinking was 15%wider in his brain than average. Good job he didn’t take up painting instead! Seems he found his calling.
