    New study, just published July 24th.

    They found that a higher NeanderScore was associated with a longer and wider occipital region of the skull and greater gyrification and grey matter volume in the visual cortex.

    Not much to say really, except that this study confirms much of what has been expected to be true in the Edenosphere for years.
