Poles - 1420
Ukrainians - 1414
Russians - 1399
Koreans - 1376
Czech - 1368

A link?

Japanese - 1313

Japanese are tiny...

Theoretically if you go by average height and weight the Dutch should lead this list!

This one data is from article in Russian gathered probably from various sources. I am not sure there is any study originally in English of that kind which deserves be trusted and published openly and include Central/Eastern European brain studies. If you want try to find any.

(Bean; Mall; Pearl) determined in study of 1261 American adults, that White Americans averaged 1323 g and Black Americans averaged 1223 g

I think all samples mentioned earlier are male brains cause female ones are smaller.

female ones are smaller.

Oy vey, you are sexist and absolutely non-PC person... ;)

On average females also have smaller hands, feet etc. There's nothing sexist about it. Don't be so sensitive. ;)
Fun fact: Neanderthals had bigger brains than people today.

And a Russian one does?? Da komrad.

An average brain weight by ethnicity/nation in grams:

And your point is?? Let's hope it's not some nonsense about intelligence because the Japs have higher IQs and outperform Europeans in standard testing as indeed do most people from that region of the world.

Anyway, it's all a load of old cobblers. As a teacher myself, I can tell yout that IQ tests and standardized testing don't necessarily reflect peoples' abilities.

I never meat such claims, therefore I don't. Western IQ tests are typically done by country than by ethnicity. Therefore when they claim Japanese or other Asians outperform Americans or Russians, it doesn't take in account Americans or Russians could be of any ethnicity.

As a teacher myself, I can tell yout that IQ tests and standardized testing don't necessarily reflect peoples' abilities.

I think the highest known form of human mental abilities are creative abilities. IQ tests don't necessarily reflect their presence directly. Regarding particular people and ethnicities there exist an important difference between creating something new and coping someone else advancements well. I don't know if it related to an ethnic traits or not but if we count Nobel Prize laureates by an ethnicity then N1 place probably comes to people to British ancestry.

Even in terms of IQ the size of the brain doesn't seem to matter. Einstein's weighted 1230 grams apparently.

Do you know this figure for Lenin perhaps?

Yeah...to gauge the IQ by brain weight is a new one! :)

1340 g.

Hopefully. However people with microcephalia are typically regarded as disabled.

Einstein is heavily accused in plagiarism. Do you think this accusations could be valid?

f we count Nobel Prize laureates by an ethnicity then N1 place probably comes to people to British ancestry.

That has as much to do with the place they live and work in, as it does with ethnicity, when it comes to the sciences anyway. You need to have the conditions in which you can do the work, the funding etc. That's one of the reasons why America, the UK, France, Germany etc come out tops in Nobel Prizes.

So anyway, what exactly is the point of this thread then? Why would anybody be interested in weight of somebody's brain?

For example it wouldn't be spare to take in account that an average human brain weight on Earth has tendency to decrease. I hope this is not an alarming tendency and requires no immediate correction?

The thing is that it's not the weight of the brain that matters apparently.
BTW, I wonder how it depends on one's physionomy.

IQ scores have been steadily falling for the past few decades
