    1. Hey, thanks for the links. I recall the Reeeing which occurred when this came out. Very unfortunate that someone attempting to explain the empirically verified pattern we see every day around us gets screwed over like that. Still, the result was a complete backfire since way more people know about this paper as a result.

  1. I am a mere statistician, not a chemist or even a neuroscientist. But I suspect you have got one or two things wrong. For instance the review at counter-currents.com instances ” Females have proportionally more white matter in this particular region than males, making for better communication between hemispheres” (quote from review, not book). This seems to refer to the 2013 study by Ingalhalikar and Smith: but this study did not actually measure whether males and females showed the supposed differences inpractice, such differences as were found were small and not all paths were examined.
    Equally your use of general intelligence scores leaves something to be desired. And your willingness to use cranial size as a measure of anything to do with brain function is worrying: phrenology next ?

    1. I suggest you actually read the book before drawing any conclusions. The review is a decent summary, but doesn’t do the thesis full justice.

      As far as that particular study, it was the only one of 2 or 3 FMRI studies I used in the book because of issues which have been noted for that type of work. I only used it because it seemed consistent with other, non-fmri, studies. In my opinion, that raised my confidence in it above the threshold needed for inclusion. Either way, it was ancillary to the other information provided and explored.

      >Equally your use of general intelligence scores leaves something to be desired.

      Care to explain why that leaves something to be desired? A branch of research which has been repeated and confirmed for over 100 years? The only part of social science with even close to that consistent track record of real-world predictions?

      Lastly, besides the fact there has been a number of studies on the relationship between cranial size and iq, it would be extremely counter-intuitive for smaller brains to be smarter than larger brains at population scales.
