Brain/Body Mass Ratio

Esiste una relazione tra la massa del cervello e quella del corpo che fornisca una stima dell’intelligenza di un organismo?
Come sempre, una risposta la si può trovare su Wikipedia:

Brain to body mass ratio (also known as the Encephalization Quotient or EQ) is a rough estimate of the possible intelligence of an organism.

Dolphins have the highest brain to body mass ratio of all cetaceans. Sharks have the highest for a fish, and octopuses have the highest for an invertebrate. Humans have a higher brain to body mass ratio than any of these animals.

p.s.: io comunque, negli ultimi due mesi, sono calato di 10 Kg. ;)
