What determines evolutionary brain growth?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (2):278-279 (2001)
Abstract
Finlay et al. address the importance of developmental constraints in brain size evolution. I discuss some aspects of this view such as the relation of brain size with processing capacity. In particular, I argue that in human evolution there must have been specific selection for increased processing capacity, and as a consequence for increased brain size
