Does larger brain size or brain/body wt. mean greater intelligence?
Does a larger head mean more brain and hence greater intelligence?

Maybe not brain size as a whole, but development of certain parts of the brain. See http://www.loni.ucla.edu/~thompson/HBM2003/isir2003ALL.html [Broken] report from a conference on the neural correlates of g.

One of the more popular theories (but still very much flawed) is the brain/body ratio.
