What would other animal skulls look like if they grew huge brains?
>>4465855Like ours basically. The ape face shape was moulded by the brain pushing stuff around and altering the position of jaw muscles. Smaller brained ancestors looked something like a cross between a cat and a squirrel. Microcephalic children have protruding upper jaws. If we ever give dogs human intelligence we need to do so by introducing avian genes for neuron density and efficiency
>>4465855Like this. They don't have a huge brain but they do have an enlarged skull volume due to hydrocephalus. Basically their brains got inflated like a balloon and the skull had to grow with it.
What about animals like birds and whales, whose bodies need to be aero/hydrodynamic?
>>4466022Whales have big heads already. Birds are unlikely to evolve big heads, but if they do, they'd just look like birds with big heads
>>4466022birds are just dinosaurs with much bigger brains
>>4466022>whales, whose bodies need to be aero/hydrodynamic?
>>4466045AKCHUALLY birds reorganized and shrunk their neurons to they could achieve greater cognition without increasing weight and energy requirements.
>>4466071have you ever seen dinosaur brains?bird brains are like 100 times bigger by body mass or skull size.
>>4465855the fuck is happening between 4 and 5?
>>4466747Highly evolved neanderthal versus primitive sapien, I assume.
>>4466747>>4466833>Highly evolved neanderthal versus primitive sapien, I assume.yes, also invention of agriculture shrunk human brain size.
