     The question above is one that is asked quite often by those wondering whether more "brain" results in more intelligence. Luckily, that question is one that has been explored by parties far smarther than me, with many drawing similar conclusions.


    According to many studies (links included below) there is a direct and positive correlation between the mass of a person's brain and their intelligence. Brain size has also been found to be an asset in terms of intelligence for spoken word and IQ tests.


    Amazingly, brains seem to have a capacity to grow and develop in certain areas. While this could be expected for music savants and math geniuses but also in taxi drivers who develop a 'mental map' over time as they master their cities.
