Debate and discussion of any biological questions not pertaining to a particular topic.
You're right about phrenology. It has to do with trying to measure a person's intelligence and their personality traits by means of examining the shape of their skull. It was started by Franz Gall.
While it really has no scientific credibility anymore, it did pave the way for modern theories of cerebral localization.
True. But i can name at least 50 people smart enough to pay me if i would tell them i can tell them how intelligent they are by reading the bumps on their head Which brings me to today question of the day: are Neathedrals extinct?

Well, i'm not sure how true or logical this is going to sound.
My father tells me tha people who are brainy have their heads bulging out from the back
However, my class topper has these features which makes me think that probably what Dad said was true.
In boilogical terms, does this mean they have extra barins or is being brainy just genetic???
I've heard that too.
I have a cousin who is only 3 yet he is unusually smart. His head is large in the back as well.
But biologically speaking, I don't think this has anything to do with being smart...
There are plenty of smart people out there who have normal-shaped heads.
Coincidences. The occipital lobe has very little to do with intelligence. That is the kind of thing a phrenologist would tell you probably
