    What impact has skull shape on the brain size and functions?

    After having seen a documentary about early man apes, questions arose. In the documentary they had made computer models of the skulls of those early man apes and had also made computer models of the shape and size of their brains. This made me wonder if this meant that the modern human brain differs in shape and function between different races and also on a subracial level. I don't mean intelligence, i know about the intelligence science already, i'm more interested in other functions.

    Since the cranial dimensions between a doliocephalic skull on the one hand and a brachyocephalic skull on the other can differ so much, does this mean that the brain differs in shape? Or is the brain 'space' more or less equally shaped in all human skull variations? My guess would be that they do differ in shape but since i've never heard anything about this yet i figured i might ask you people if you know anything about it.

    I've heard about differences in volume and weight in different populations but i would like it if someone with knowledge in the matter could explain it more thouroghly.

    If the brain shape differs, and if so the brain mass in different areas of the brain differs in quantity, does this mean that different brain functions are more highly developed in some skulls while they are less so in other skulls and vice versa?

    The brain was definitely different in size, shape and complexity of the convolutions.

    As the possessor of a well-shaped somewhat Borreby-influenced skull - made long, high and wide by three different lines - I can clearly say that an increase in cranial capacity means an increase in its functions........
