plural and posessive s
Dear Colleagues,

One of my students wrote this sentence and I m not comfortable about the plural of the word sizes here. 

I think that mental differences between men and women don t depend on their brain sizes.

Wouldn t it be better:  their brains size

Thanks for your help.

on the size of their brains is the natural utterance.

Thanks a lot. Yes, this sounds more natural.

I agree with cunliffe - your example sounds unnatural.
