I’m pretty sure brain development is attributed to us eating meat. As you described the jungle dying off and our ancestors becoming plain dwellers, they sought new food supplies to replace the vegetation they no longer had, they foound the replacement in meat. Dieticians will tell you how important red meat is in the development of the brain.
The idea is that we began eating it raw and the development was slow but significant, then we reached the intelligence to use fire and when we started cooking meat, we could then digest it better and this caused a rapid increase in brain development.
But one thing I have heard is that there are these little holes in our brain somewhere that seem to be there for something to connect in to them but the only compound known to man that fits perfectly into these little slots is THC from cannibis. However that is just something I heard during a bong sesh with a bunch of clowns so the validity of the idea is dubious at best.
