It’s no secret that athletes like LeBron James, Serena Williams, Serene Williams and others are not all that great at sports.
But in a new paper published by researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder, researchers found that while their performances are on par with some other elite athletes, the average athlete has a significantly lower brain size than the average non-athlete.
The study found that the average person in their sample had a brain size of just 4.7 cubic centimeters, compared to the average male athlete’s 4.6 cubic centimeters.
The findings also suggested that a brain volume of just 6 cubic centimeters may not be enough for most people to have an athletic career.
“The brain is a very complex system, and we know that it is a big, complicated structure,” said lead author Rana Shafir, a professor of neuroscience and psychology at CU Boulder.
“It’s also a complex system with a lot of different functions.”
It’s not clear why this happens.
A number of studies have shown that the brain’s volume can vary depending on the type of sport an individual participates in, but Shafire says that she and her colleagues were interested in finding out why that was.
“We wanted to understand why brain volume is so varied in this population,” Shafira said.
She and her team conducted the study with two groups of college students, and each group had a different number of hours spent playing sports, and different body types.
They then measured the brain volume and cognitive abilities of each group, and compared them to each other.
“For our sample, the group that participated in a more physical sport had larger brain volumes,” Shaffire said.
“That’s what we found.
We did find that the group with the larger brain had more ability at learning things in their daily lives.”
To find out why, Shafiro and her research team analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the most widely used health survey of Americans.
This survey is the largest survey of American adults, and it’s used to measure a wide range of health issues, including health behaviors and health care.
It was designed to capture data from nearly all Americans, so it’s a pretty good gauge of how well someone is doing.
Shafir’s team also collected data from more than 6,000 athletes in the National Youth Basketball League (YBL) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the governing body for collegiate sports in the U.S. They looked at how much time they spent in the gym, and how much practice they did in a given month.
These were both measures that are often used in studies of brain size.
The results, which were published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, showed that the smaller the average brain size, the less time they’d been spending in the physical gym.
The researchers then compared their findings with the results of a large survey of college athletes.
The results of the survey, conducted by researchers from the University at Buffalo, found that among all college athletes, those who had larger brains were about four times more likely to be in the top 10 percent of their sport’s performance, and nearly three times more than the next highest group.
This was similar to what Shafiri and her study found for the NBA.
The study found athletes with larger brains had a higher average basketball score than those with smaller brains.
“Our results are consistent with our hypotheses,” Shapiro said.
However, she added that the researchers didn’t have any data to back up their hypothesis that the bigger the brain, the more time they spend in the games.
“What we found was that it doesn’t seem to be the case that you’re playing more hours in the arena than the other guys,” Shafer said.
Instead, Shafer believes that the findings may be due to the fact that the more sports you play, the bigger your brain gets.
“It’s probably because you play more sports that your brain size grows, and then you move on to the next thing,” she said.
“This may be why there are so many guys who have a huge brain, but their brains aren’t big enough to play the game that they’re really good at.”
The study is the first to find a correlation between brain size and sports performance.
Previous research has found that athletes with smaller brain volumes are more likely than those who have larger brains to be injured, and have a lower chance of achieving high-level sports performance, like basketball.
Shafer’s team said their study provides some additional insight into the role of genetics in sports performance and brain size in particular.
“Although our data suggests that the brains of athletes with large brains are more mobile, there are also some other variables that are associated with sports performance that are more stable across sports,” ShAFIR said.
