There are centuries of bad studies making this claim, all of them seeking a nice, clean, easily measurable way of predicting a person's aptitude. All of them have proved bobkis. If you measure brain size the right way I am certain that it correlates to intelligence. I'm also certain that if you measure it in another right way it correlates to a preference for Chianti over Chablis, or dying your hair green in high school.
It's all in what you measure.
