This web exhibit was first built in 2000 by Patricia Anne Kinser, Haverford College, under the direction of Paul Grobstein, Bryn Mawr College. The updated version of Comparative Neuroanatomy and Intelligence is now online at http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/exchange/brains. This old version has been archived in place, and will continue to be available for teachers and students who are using it.
Compare Brain and Body Sizes
The Neuron- Up Close and Personal
In the table below all of the animals now have the same brain sizes. What happens now??? If we make all brain sizes equal, will we see any difference between the animals? Remember we are not concerned with body size anymore because we have controlled for body size and now simply made all brains the same size. Does this mean that from now on these animals would act the same, walk the same, eat the same things, behave the same ways?
