Relationship of brain and skull more than just packaging

...it shares with evolutionary history a reduction in cranial elements and coincident changes in the shape of the skull and brain. The researchers believe that studying craniosynostosis could shed light on the joint evolution of the brain and skull. The two types of craniosynostosis the researchers studied wer...
