I did reference it several months ago, here at sci.anthro, so if anybody
kept the ref, I'd appreciate 'lil help.

Alternatively, yesterday I posted a reference to Rushton's recent paper
on brain size and IQ (a review). In that paper, which I think he
co-authored, but don't recall, he cites the reference correcting Gould's

How would we get the IQ of anyone but modern humans? :)

If you haven't seen the Rushton reference I posted recently, lemme know
and I'll dig it up again. Please note that Rushton's explanation for the
relationship is not widely accepted amongst neurobiologists or
evolutionists, so far as I can tell, and is not held up here by me as
sound reasoning. I only mean to cite his paper in order to point out a
factual nit: there is a correlation, probably not causal, between brain
size and IQ.
