ACER, Niyazi; USANMAZ, Mustafa; TUGAY, Urnut  and  ERTEKI'N, Tolga. Estimation of Cranial Capacity in 17-26 Years Old University Students. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2007, vol.25, n.1, pp.65-70. ISSN 0717-9502.

It is natural that there is close relationship between cranial capacity, and the size of brain. Several studies have estimated the cranial capacity which indirectly reflects the brain volume. This study was carried out on 366 (226 male and 140 female) healthy university students aged between 17-26 years old at Mugla University, Mugla, Turkey. By using linear dimensions of the head the mean cranial capacity and SD in males and females were 1411.64+118.9 cm3 and 1306.95+162.9 cm3, respectively. There was a significant difference between genders (p<0.05). This investigation was showed the cranial capacity is larger in males than females. We also proposed a regression formula that could be used to predict the cranial capacity
