The size of a human's brain does not necessarily reflect its cognitive capacity.

Whose brain is larger: Neanderthal man or modern man? Finding out the answer is easy when you turn to the experts.

The capacity of the skull of classic Neanderthal man was often larger than that of modern man. The capacity was between 1,350 to 1,700 cubic centimeters with the average being 1,400 to 1,450 cubic centimeters.

The mean cranial capacity of modern man is 1,370 cubic centimeters with a range of 950 to 2,200; however, brain size alone is not an index of intelligence.
