We're not sure why it happened. Even 'when' is a topic of ongoing debate. But at some point, for some reason, our brains got big.

There are plenty of hypotheses as to how we got here, but to find supporting evidence we need experiments on the brains of chimpanzees and humans, which involves practical (not to mention ethical) challenges. So these scientists went and built their own specimens.

I wonder if they're going to market it in jars or cans or packaged in some form of durable biodegradable plastic wrapping
