Bigger brain may not make you smarter: Study

London, May 15 (PTI) There is an "ideal" brain circuit size suited to carrying out particular tasks, a study has found.

Researchers from the University of Cambridge in the UK found increasing the size of neural circuits in the brain can boost learning performance.

However, this increased connectivity also has the potential to impede learning, they said.

The study, published in the journal PNAS, looked at how neural circuits can use additional connectivity to achieve faster and more precise learning.
