    That might be. The problem therefore is that it also depends on their brain size!

    This article may be kind of a stretch, but it does make for interesting reading. Thanks for the post.
    I think a lot of our social skills are learned, whether we have large orbital prefontal cortexes or not..

    It's important to remember correlation doesn't imply causation, and it doesn't seem to state the directionality of the findings. Do the people who have larger brain size there have more friends or do they have a larger prefrontal cortex because they have more friends?

    I have to chuckle at the thought of the brain literally getting bigger over having more friends.

    Correlation and causation are indeed two different things.

    Bananas are overrated. Twinkies are where it's at.

    BTW, I would post a funny pic, but the internet in this shitty-ass ho dump (cheap hotel) is slower than dialup...and that's NOT an exaggeration.
